ANN ARBOR, Mich. – University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh helped the victims of a car crash Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 94 in Ann Arbor, according to Michigan State Police.

State police say a Jeep Cherokee lost control on westbound I-94 near Saline Road, crossed the center median wall, overturned and ended up in the eastbound I-94 traffic lanes. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Harbaugh and James Minick, who is a member of the university's athletic staff, were traveling eastbound on I-94 when they saw the crashed SUV. They helped the passenger -- a 73-year-old woman -- out of the Jeep. Harbaugh and Minick also assisted the partially-ejected driver with first-aid. Moreover, they used coats to keep the injured passenger warm until EMS arrived.

The driver and passenger were transported to St. Joseph Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

State police say the 53-year-old driver was at fault for the crash. They were traveling too fast in slippery road conditions.
