A woman was transported to Cooper Medical Center after her vehicle hit a parked car and overturned on Amherst Road in Audubon Monday afternoon.
“She was crying, ‘Help me, help me,’” according to one Amherst Road resident who heard the crash and called 9-1-1 around 1 p.m.
Another neighbor from Carlisle Road said that a good Samaritan sat in the street with the driver and held her hand until police arrived.
First responders from Audubon and Mt. Ephraim removed the passenger side door of her silver Ford Focus to free the driver. She was “wide awake” at the scene, according to technicians. The extent of her injuries is unknown.
The Mini Cooper that had been struck in the crash was unoccupied at the time, according to its owner. No other vehicles were involved, and no one else was hurt. The Ford was towed from the scene.
Drivers “fly from St. Rose [School] to Pine Street,” one resident remarked.
Official word was unavailable from authorities as to the cause of the accident.
