    Neighbors raced to help an elderly woman pinned under a car late Saturday afternoon.

    It happened in a driveway of a town home at 1299 New Britain Avenue in West Hartford.

    A neighbor said the woman somehow became stuck underneath the driver’s side front tire.
    The neighbor reports the woman was getting nervous.

    “I just stayed down close and tried to calm her down, just to keep breathing slowly, that we could hear help was coming," Kristine Norton, of West Hartford, said. "And she kept saying she was not going to make it. And I had her look at her wedding ring that was stuck right by her hand and said just look at that, focus, and she said I can do it.”

    Emergency responders arrived soon after, lifted the car, and rushed the woman to the hospital.

    There’s no word yet on her condition or how she became trapped.
