A single-car crash in Youngstown Monday evening sent the driver to the hospital.

It happened around 8 p.m. on the Madison Avenue Expressway between the Fifth Avenue and Belmont Avenue exits.  A witness said an SUV, driven by April Asayag, 41, hit a guard rail and then a cement abutment before flipping over onto the highway.

Jerry Green saw the crash from the nearby CVS store and went down the embankment to the scene, where he found Asayag hanging out the window.

“There was two other guys in a truck that pulled up and the car was on fire. The engine was on fire. These guys was gonna pull her out. They said don’t do it, but they did it anyway,” Green said.

Green said Asayag was not wearing a seat belt.  Police on the scene used a fire extinguisher to put out the fire.

Asayag was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center. Her condition has not been reported.
