Billings Montana., July 27, 2016--//mna press//--At almost 1pm on Montana Avenue and the overpass on 6th street west, yesterday, Montana News staff noticed honking and merely escaped an accident themselves.
A woman driving a cream colored PT Cruiser, was not stopping for traffic and started to go the wrong way on the overpass.
While investigating, Montana News staff witnessed a Police Officer drive up and attempt to stop the vehicle.
The Police Officer got out of his vehicle and approached the PT Cruiser with the assistance of another man, later to be identified as Dr. Mike Metzger of St. Vincent's Internal Medicine on Broadwater Ave.
“Open the door,” the Police Officer tries to shout more than once at the woman through the rolled up cruiser window. “ Dr. Metzger tried to ask her if she could even open the door as he tried shout to the woman.
The Police Officer then says to Dr. Metzger, “She's not responding!” He then moves to the passenger side of the vehicle and forces his hand into barely opened window and unlocks the vehicle.
Suddenly the vehicle starts to move forward nearly running over the Dr. and the Billings Police Officer. The PT Cruiser then runs into the front of the Billings Patrol car. The Patrol car stop the PT Cruiser from rolling forward.
Soon after another Police vehicle and an ambulance showed up on the scene.
When interviewed, Dr. Metzger Stated, " I followed the woman who for at least a block watching her almost hit ten other cars head on and nearly hit a light pole as she went up on the side walk."
He stated that he thought "it was possible the woman was having a seizure."
Thanks to Dr. Metzger following the woman while making a call to 911 and to the initial Police Officer on the scene, no one was hurt and the woman received much needed medial help.
