College basketball: Mississippi State players help woman after car crash
One woman is happy to have had the help of the Mississippi State men's basketball team.
On Friday, as the team traveled by bus to Louisiana for a Saturday matchup with LSU, players and coaches yelled to stop the bus when they saw a female motorist who crashed into the median strip on the highway and flipped her vehicle, Mississippi State spokesman Gregg Ellis said to ESPN.
Players, coaches and others staffers ran from the bus and helped "pull" her from the car, Ellis added. "They all jumped off. She was upside down."
The woman, who did not appear to have any serious injuries after being examined by the team's trainer Ryan Dotson, was then brought onto the team bus until medical and emergency personnel arrived on the scene.
"We didn't want her waiting on the side of the road alone," Ellis said.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation had issued a winter storm warning to all motorists on Friday.
Sometimes you find yourself in the right place at the right time, and fortunate enough for this woman the Mississippi State basketball team proved to be johnny-on-the-spot.
