(SALEM, Ore.) - Three people came to the aid of a grandmother today after a rollover accident that left her SUV in a ditch at the intersection of Skyline Road and Cole Road South. Firefighters say the efforts of the citizens who stopped to help made a difference.

Salem Fire Department Spokesman Bill Holmstrom says that this is one of several incidents that kept crews moving this morning. Monday morning Salem Fire Department responded to numerous accidents due to the slick road conditions, he said.

The call about the rolled SUV on Skyline Road came in at 8:47 AM today, Holmstrom said. When firefighters arrived they found the grandmother was still inside the vehicle, but was being assisted by a citizen, Mr. Jesse Adams who was in the water and mud trying to help.

"In the meantime, additional citizens, Mr. and Mrs. Montage were caring for the woman's 5-year old grandson in their vehicle to keep him safe and warm while firefighter/paramedics assisted in getting his grandmother out of her vehicle" Holmstrom said.

Both the grandmother and grandson were transported to Salem Hospital in good condition.

Captain John Justice stated, "These three individuals really made a tremendous difference in assisting the rescue of the people trapped in the car. We cannot thank them enough".
