Officers Lift Car To Rescue Pinned Woman

UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) – Officials say a woman struck by and pinned underneath a car over the weekend before police officers and an emergency responder lifted it off her remains in critical condition.

Police in Delaware County’s Upper Darby said the woman was jogging when she was struck at about 8 a.m. Saturday by a car driven by a man on his way to church.

Superintendent Michael Chitwood said the woman was trapped under the vehicle, and three Upper Darby police officers and an emergency responder lifted it off.

The 86-year-old driver remained at the scene and was cooperating, and Chitwood said it was simply an accident with no foul play involved.

The 38-year-old woman, whose name wasn’t released, was taken to Lankenau Medical Center, where Chitwood said she remained in critical condition Monday.
