Quick Acting Grandmother Lends Hand, Hose in Bryan Wreck

Everyone is OK after a rollover accident in northwest Bryan, but it could have been much worse if it wasn't for a quick thinking grandmother.

Authorities say a driver heading east on Sandy Point Road Sunday night attempted to pass another vehicle when they lost control. The car rolled multiple times and was on fire when a resident in the area stepped in.

"I saw a car upside-down smoking on the field right across from me exactly, and I thought this is very bad, what could I do to help," said Jean Paulini.

Paulini pulled the hose from her son's house, dragged it across the street and began putting out the fire.

The car's occupant was eventually taken to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
