TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A Facebook post from Meals on Wheels in Terre Haute says that staff from Meals on Wheels were able to assist in a rescue.

A two-vehicle car crash happened in front of their office at 5th and Poplar Streets in Terre Haute Monday.

Unexpected things happen every day which cause a community to unite and react. Today, right in front of our building, there was a terrible car crash that involved a flipped over vehicle with 2 young children trapped inside hanging from their carseats,”

Charity Mouck, volunteer coordinator for Meals on Wheels, wrote in the post

The post goes on to say that one staff member helped, alongside pedestrians, to free the children from the vehicle by breaking a car window.

Shortly after everyone was out of the vehicle, the cops, ambulance, and firemen arrived. The emergency responders went to work at the scene and assessing those involved, while the rest of our staff offered water and kindness.
