Several Good Samaritans joined forces to lift a woman’s car after it had landed on top of her following a collision with a silver C5 Corvette convertible fleeing Alabama state troopers in Mobile on Thursday morning.
“When he hit her — her car spun and then she was ejected out of the back window and her car landed on her,” a witness told FOX10 News.
Fortunately, “five or six” Good Samaritans quickly sprang into action, moving the car off the victim, who was said to be conscious and alert when an ambulance arrived to transport her to a hospital.
The action began when the Corvette driver was fleeing Alabama state troopers and smashed into the woman’s Honda Accord at Michigan Avenue and Duval Street.
The Honda driver also had a baby girl in the back seat, and as the witness went to help the toddler, the suspect in the Corvette tried to get away in the witness’s vehicle.
“He tried to jump in my truck … so when he jumped in my truck I tried to get him out of my truck – me and the trooper,” the witness explained. “Then when he got out of my truck he tried to get into the trooper’s truck. But they got him and took him to the ground and put handcuffs on him, and I think they Tased him.”
The Honda driver and her baby were both taken to a hospital with unknown injuries, according to fox10tv.com, and both were released soon after.
The chase apparently had started when the Corvette driver refused to stop for a trooper. Police would later identify the Corvette driver as Matthew Jose Molina.
