BROWNVILLE - A young couple whose car went off the road and flipped are alive this morning because of the doctor who stopped to treat them.
Brownville Police Chief Nick Clukey says the couple's car went off Route 11 and rolled at least four times before coming to a stop more than 100 yards off the road.
Chief Clukey says that a doctor who was driving by stopped her car and treated 18-year-old Sarah Willinsky of Brownville and Medford resident Tyler Creighton, who is in his early 20s.
The chief says he's working to confirm the doctor's identity and he wants to credit her for treating the two young people until emergency crews arrived.
