“Luckily I was blessed to be there,” Dean told News Center 7’s Monica Castro. “Unfortunately for a bad situation, but it turned into a good situation.”

Police and multiple medic units responded to the crash just after 5:30 p.m., per initial reports.

The women and the RTA driver were taken to a hospital, all suffering non-life threatening injuries, RTA COO Chris Cole said. There was no word from Dayton police or firefighters about the driver of the car in the collision.

“If I was in that situation,” Dean said, “I would want someone to jump in there and help me.”
