Bystanders rescue man after he is hit by car in Worcester

WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - Two good Samaritans came to the rescue in Worcester after a man riding a bicycle was hit by a car.

Police said the bicyclist was struck just before 4 p.m. on Dewey Street when a car exiting a driveway hit him. The bicyclist ended up pinned underneath the car.

Joseph Kegbeh was driving home from work when he said he saw the man underneath the car.

“He spoke. I said, are you OK? He said, ‘I’m OK.’ He said, ‘I’m not OK, actually.’ He had a little bleeding on his side. And his hand was bleeding also. His head couldn’t move,” said Kegbeh.

Kegbeh and another man used car jacks to lift the car off the bicyclist just as emergency crews arrived. Police said the man was under observation at the hospital but is expected to be OK.
