Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with congratulations to a small crowd in Dallas. A motorcyclist crashed into a car and ended up trapped underneath. Emergency personnel tried to save her using a jack to lift the vehicle, which failed. It was taking too long to bring heavier equipment, so a crowd of emergency responders and passers-by lifted the vehicle by hand. Police have now released video in which the woman is pulled out from underneath the car with no serious injuries. It's MORNING EDITION.
