Surgeon helps at crash site

Associated Press

JOPLIN, Mo. - A southwest Missouri orthopedic surgeon who was spending a day being introduced to Joplin-area family physicians made a lasting first impression after rushing to the aid of crash victims whose car had just overturned.

Dr. Andrew Collette, who has been working for Freeman Health System in Joplin for about six months, was with a hospital administrator last Tuesday when they came upon the overturned vehicle on Missouri Highway 43, the Joplin Globe reported.

The car's engine was still running and the vehicle was spewing gasoline.

A teenage boy who had escaped the car was trying to pull others from the wreckag.

Collette and the teenager worked frantically to pull the injured driver, a 49-year-old Joplin man, and another teenage boy from the wreck.
