Camps and a friend were able to jump out of their cars as the deadly pileup south of Gainesville left cars crushed under trucks and vehicles in flames. The pileup started minutes after Florida Highway

Patrol troopers reopened the highway, which had been closed because of poor visibility from a nearby wildfire.

Camps says he has suffered psychologically.
