COLUMBUS, Ga. Just hours after the explosions in Boston, News 3 spoke by phone with a Columbus runner who participated in Monday's marathon. It was the first time Crocket Miller had run in the Boston Marathon.
Miller told us she had already crossed the finish line when the explosions rang out. "I could see the smoke from where I was. I could not see anything of the scene. All I could see was smoke. I wasn't far, probably 400 feet (from the finish line) because there was a crowd, there was such a crowd and everybody was moving so slowly."
Miller says the explosions happened about five minutes after she finished the race. Her family was there to watch her run. None of them was injured.
