A teenager who survived a prom night crash that killed two of his friends struggled to speak as he recalled the horrific collision.
Jaxon Smith was repeatedly overcome with emotion while discussing Saturday's smash in Arcadia Indiana, which killed his old friend Kalen Hart, 18, and her boyfriend Lendon Byram.
He displayed his injuries - including a badly swollen foot, as well as a bruised and grazed leg, while recalling the accident with WTHR.
Smith, who says he cannot remember taking photos before leaving, or the smash itself, added: 'Got a concussion, a cut on my upper lip.

Jaxon Smith struggled to speak as he was interviewed about Saturday's prom night crash in Indiana that killed his friend Kalen Smith and Smith's boyfriend Lendon Byram
Explaining the emotional impact of the smash, which happened before the four friends even arrived at Hamilton Heights High School for the party, Smith had to pause again as he said: 'Kalen is one of my best friends, and I - I don't know. It's going to be hard.
'I remember bits and pieces of the accident. I remember certain sequences, I remember the other girl asking me to get out of the car.'
It is unclear if Smith was referring to Hart, who died, or his own girlfriend, who was in the back of the car with him, and also survived.
Smith, a senior at Hamilton Heights High, said he feels lucky to have survived the horrific smash, which remains under investigation.
'I shouldn't be walking today,' he said. 'I shouldn't be talking to you right now, but I am. God has a plan for me.'
Paying tribute to Hart, who attended Hamilton Heights High and Byram, who was a junior at Cathedral High School, Smith added: 'They were good people.' He said Hart was like a sister to him, adding: 'They didn't deserve what happened.'

Police are still investigating the crash that occurred in Arcadia Saturday night, but said it didn't initially appear as if alcohol or drugs played a role in the wreck
The crash occurred when an SUV crashed into the Honda carrying the four teenagers, with the prom canceled when news of the tragedy broke.
Byram, a junior at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, was driving the Honda at the time.
The SUV driver was also a high school student but they declined medical treatment. Authorities haven't released the name of that driver, but say they do not believe drugs or alcohol was a factor
