Citizen’s Heroic Efforts Save Woman’s Life After Rollover Accident – VIDEO
SPRING HILL – A woman is lucky to be alive today, after the minivan she was driving overturned at the intersection of Spring Hill Drive and Kass Circle – partially ejected her body, and trapping her under the vehicle.
Several witnesses at the scene rushed to the woman’s aid and held the van off of her body until Fire Rescue could arrive on scene. A young child was pulled from the vehicle but did not appear to be injured. As a precaution, the child was transported to Bayonet Point for observation.
Nurses Shallun Dennis and Ashley Alleva say the woman may not have survived the crash, if not for the heroic actions of local citizens. Alleva estimates that at least 10 to 15 people held the roof of the van off of the victim’s head until firefighters could shore up the van. According to Alleva, the woman appeared to have sustained serious injuries, but was conscious and breathing during the rescue operation.
The victim was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital for treatment, where her condition remains unknown at this time.
Witnesses say the driver of the Bronze Buick was turning onto Spring Hill Drive from Kass Circle when she struck the minivan broad side, causing it to flip. The driver of the Buick was not injured.
