INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis' police chief and two other passers-by are being credited for helping to rescue a driver following a freeway rollover crash.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says Chief Bryan Roach had recently left police headquarters Monday night when he came upon the crash on Interstate 70. The department says Roach, a nurse and another concerned citizen helped get the driver out.
Police say the driver was slightly injured and was taken to a hospital for treatment. The crash is under investigation.
Roach says in a statement that they all "converged on the immediate needs of an accident victim without a second thought." A second vehicle was damaged, but no one else was injured.
Mayor Joe Hogsett says he's "extremely proud of Chief Roach's courage when confronted with this harrowing situation."
