PITTSBURGH, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- University of Pittsburgh men's basketball Coach Jamie Dixon gave aid to car crash victims this weekend, authorities said Sunday.

The vehicle had flipped over when Dixon drove by, saw the accident and stopped to help, authorities said.

Dixon sustained some minor injured to his hands and was treated at the scene, the newspaper reported.

Police said a 48-year-old female passenger in the car may have sustained a broken ankle in the mishap.
