A video captured an anonymous group of Good Samaritans lifting up minivan to rescue six people trapped in the vehicle following a crash in Arlington.
According to WFAA, the crash occurred when two vehicles racing recklessly on Interstate 20 caused a chain-reaction accident with the minivan. The minivan went off the road and overturned in a grassy median.
The occupants of the minivan, a mother, father, three children, and a grandmother, were able to escape the vehicle after a group of bystanders lifted the minivan to a position that allowed the occupants to be extracted.
Arlington police say one suspect was arrested for driving while intoxicated. She has been identified as Demetria Pryor of Fort Worth. Records indicate she was previously required to wear an alcohol monitoring device which was removed January of 2016.
Authorities recently stepped up enforcement efforts along the stretch of interstate where the crash occurred, issuing 143 citations last week alone.
