CAMPBELL | Witnesses and passers-by helped lift a vehicle off a Campbell man injured when he crashed a car into trees over the weekend, according to the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office.
Graig A.C. Sprague, 25, of Campbell, was airlifted to Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa. after the crash, which occurred around 5:15 p.m. Saturday on County Route 17 in the Town of Campbell.
Sprague was released Monday, according to Robert Packer Hospital staff.
Deputies were dispatched to County Route 17 after receiving a call about an erratic driver in a red four-door sedan. Before they reached the area, they got a second call that the car had been involved in a rollover crash into several trees, and that the driver was pinned beneath the vehicle.
Several witnesses and passers-by lifted and held the vehicle off Sprague while others tended to him until first responders arrived, deputies report.
The investigation is continuing and charges are pending against Sprague, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were assisted at the scene by New York State Police, the Campbell Fire Department, Rural/Metro Advanced Life Support, Mercy Flight and T&R Towing.
