Driver, 83, not seriously hurt in Danvers crash


Both Romano and Billert got out of their vehicles in confusion, not realizing at first that a car had hit them and flipped.

Billert went to the Camry to help the woman, Romano said.

“She was conscious, she was talking,” said Romano, who said she knows the woman’s family in Danvers.

“I didn’t try to get her out,” Billert said. “I just wanted to make sure she was conscious, alert and awake and she was OK. She was very aware. She gave us a name and a number. We had someone who was behind us, they called 911.”

Al’s Auto attached two cables to the sedan to roll it off the island and back on its tires. Traffic had been diverted on Holten Street as the scene was cleared, but there were no significant backups as a result of the incident.
