A woman whose vehicle rolled on the outskirts of Pleasant Point yesterday was pulled from the wreckage by a local doctor.
Doctor Anton van den Bergh happened to be passing by the scene shortly after the crash around 3pm. The car hit the kerb, nosed into a culvert, and rolled into some bushes before coming to rest on its side.
The woman sustained some injuries, but was in a stable condition in Timaru Hospital last night, a hospital spokesperson said.
