Laurie Collins told WTHR she heard the impact but she did not see the crash.
When she got closer, she was horrified: a woman who had been thrown from the van was trapped underneath it.
"You could see the lady was underneath the van," Collins said. "All of a sudden, all these people came out of nowhere, all kinds of different people and they were all trying to help together. You could see them talking to her trying to get her, assess her and they all just kind of said, 'We're gonna get this van off her'."
"I think they said, '1, 2, 3' and they all pushed up and they almost couldn't get it, so like, two more guys came over and were trying to help."
With the van lifted up, others were able to pull the woman to safety.
According to WTHR, the woman who was injured was taken to Eskenazi Hospital in critical but stable condition.
Collins said as heart-wrenching as it was to see a person injured, it was a moment she will never forget.
"There was no hesitation. There was no decisions. It was instant, like everybody automatically worked together," Collins said.
