Ulysses Betancourt, his wife Gabrielle and their son Damian were on their way to the supermarket after they got off a bus at 2 p.m. on October 14 when the disaster was averted.
The hero driver of the Chevrolet, the 27-year-old Shannon Vivar, was in the vehicle with her mother and son at the time.
Mrs. Vivar sustained non-life-threatening injuries and insisted that she was just in the right place at the right time.
But car salesman Carvana still wanted to reward her and so gave her a new car and a new car seat as a son and a family trip to Disneyland.

A company spokeswoman said: “When we heard this, we recognized her as a community hero, and when you watch the video, it's so attractive.
& # 39; We wanted to reach this woman and thank her for this remarkable action & # 39 ;, said Fox10.

Ernesto Otanez Oveso was arrested for drunk driving after the shocking crash
Ernesto Otanez Oveso stood behind the wheel of the Jeep, who was under the influence at the time, police said.
After the accident, Oveso and a woman got out in the car and fled the stage.
When he noticed that he was being followed by a witness, police said Oveso pulled a knife and stuck to the car doors of the man who followed him.
The 23-year-old was arrested on DUI and aggravated attack charges, but despite a catalog of previous offenses, Oveso was released a few hours later, according to judicial archives.
Officers also found a gun in the Jeep, so an extra forbidden possession charge was added, police said.
The female passenger with Oveso has not yet been located, police added.
