BOSTON (AP) — Gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively says he helped pull a woman from an overturned car in Springfield.
Lively, who is running as an independent, says the accident happened near the Big Y supermarket on St. James Avenue at about 7:20 a.m. Monday. He said the driver of an SUV appeared to have rolled over after getting broadsided by another vehicle.
Lively said he was among a number of bystanders that helped free the SUV driver from the overturned vehicle before police and paramedics arrived. He said the driver did not appear to have any serious injuries but was in shock.
Lively is among five candidates on the Nov. 4 ballot running for governor, including Republican Charlie Baker, Democrat Martha Coakley, and independent candidates Evan Falchuk and Jeff McCormick.
