WILD CRASH: Witnesses lift car off 2 women pinned when car jumps curb

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Good Samaritans acted like superheroes out of a movie, as they jumped into action in our nations' capital to save two people trapped under a car.

Video shows the silver Chevy Malibu jumping the curb and pinning two women underneath it on a Washington, D.C. street corner.

The driver climbed out on the passenger side. Then she checked on her 8-year-old son riding in the back seat.

Some people who saw the wreck immediately came over and started working as a team to lift the car off the trapped people.

The driver, who did not want to be identified to WJLA-TV, says she was especially grateful for the help, saying, "I'm six-months pregnant, we ran over people. I'm glad there were enough people out here to physically lift the car to get them from under it."
