A good Samaritan helped an elderly woman who was trapped in her car after a crash in Westwood Tuesday, according to police. 

Police say the woman crashed into a tree and got stuck in her car near the intersection of Boudinot and Phoenix avenues. 

When the car began to smoke and catch fire, a good Samaritan stopped and pulled the woman from the car, according to officials.

She was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, with minor injuries. However, the good Samaritan took off. 

"She looked fine! An older lady. They just sat there a while and checked everything and she says OK I'm ready to get up!. They helped her up and she laid on the stretcher and that was about it," said witness, Jerry Wolfe.

Police haven't said what caused the crash.
