PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Several Good Samaritans helped save a 19-year-old girl who was trapped under her car following a crash in the Florida Panhandle.

Florida Highway Patrol officials say Kayla Lynn Sapp was driving near Eglin Air Force Base on Wednesday when her rear tire blew out, causing the vehicle to flip. Sapp was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. The overturned car landed on her, trapping her underneath.

Several passers-by stopped to lift the vehicle off Sapp. She was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://tinyurl.com/qhxovvp) reports her passenger, 38-year-old Dana Mithele Sapp, was also hospitalized with serious injuries.
