Jaws of Life Needed After Knotty Oak Area Rollover

Driver headed to hospital after crash on Wednesday afternoon.


Update - 5:16 p.m.: According to Anthony Fire Deputy Chief Robert Warren, the driver who was alone in the vehicle was transported to Kent Hospital with minor injuries after rolling her mini van on its side.

Coventry Police Officer Rich Pendola held the woman's hand through a window during the extrication to keep her calm.

"We think she may have went up on a wall and rolled the van," said Warren. "She did have minor injuries, but nothing life-threatening."

Nice to hear about a police officer holding the elderly woman's hand. Too many people have the opinion that cops are this or that. There are a few who rise above those opinions....just think if that had been your mom or grandma. I commend you Officer Pendola. Thanks for doing that.
