CHARLEVOIX, Mich., March 2 (UPI) -- A Michigan conservation officer who responded to the scene of a nearby crash found a woman involved in the collision calming her nerves by crocheting.

The state Department of Natural Resources said Officer Steve Speigl responded to the scene of a crash less than a mile from his location in February and he opened the door of a car involved in the collision to check the occupants for injuries.


Speigl looked into the back seat and was greeted with an unexpected sight -- a woman with a nosebleed working on her crocheting.

"The woman, even though bleeding from her nose, said that crocheting was relaxing and she needed it after being involved in an accident," the department said.

There were no serious injuries from the crash and the passengers were treated on the scene and released.
