Pitt basketball head coach Jamie Dixon was traveling on I-279 in Pittsburgh this weekend when he stumbled upon a pretty serious car accident:

University of Pittsburgh basketball coach Jamie Dixon stopped Saturday night to help an accident victim on Interstate 279 near the McKnight Road exit.

A Ford Escape traveling north in the left lane suddenly swerved to the right, crossed two lanes of traffic, struck a concrete barrier and rolled over onto the passenger side, police said. Passenger Diane Robinson, 48, of Zelienople suffered lower body injuries and was taken to Allegheny General Hospital, North side. She was in fair condition Sunday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

According a state trooper, Dixon removed at least one of the crash victims from the car. In the process, he himself was treated with minor injuries. It's hard to believe others wouldn't have done the same thing if they realized people were trapped inside or at the very least, call for help. Still, a great move on Dixon's part to help out when needed.
