Several Good Samaritans jumped into action in Midtown after a woman was struck and dragged by a livery cab.

Eyewitnesses say the car ran a red light and hit the woman as she crossed East 54th Street at Lexington Avenue Thursday night.

The victim was pinned under the car.

People had to bang on the driver's window to let him know he hit someone.

Several men then lifted the car to free the woman.

She was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition.
