She helped treat the wounded at the supermarket immediately after the crash.
She said: "The first thing I did was run to our first aid store and grab a whole load of bandages.
"Some had bad head wounds, others were slightly burnt but most people were totally shocked.
"I had done a first aid course at college so I basically knew what to do and I helped put on ice packs and head bandages.
"I spent a lot of time with one man who was semi-conscious. My training told me that the one thing I had to do was keep him awake.
"We must have had around 100 casualties at one time many just sat around in chairs dazed and confused."
Jacqueline added: "The one thing that strikes me the most was how the passengers looked after each other. How some made it out of the wreckage I don't know."
