N.C. State defensive coordinator Dave Huxtable and wide receiver coach Frisman Jackson helped rescue a 16-year-old girl from a car crash Tuesday night in Raleigh.
Jackson and Huxtable, who live down the street from one another, according to ESPN, were driving home when they found the car flipped over on the side of the road.
“We both jumped out of our car and ran over to aid the person,” Jackson said, via ESPN.com. “We were talking to her on the driver’s side. I went around to the passenger’s side and yanked the door open and me and Coach Huxtable both pulled her out.”

“The door was kind of stuck in some mud so I had to go back to my old football weight-lifting, get down in a squat position and use your whole lower half to yank it open,” Jackson said. “The car was flipped on its hood. It was pretty bad. It was stuck there in the trees and everything.”
The driver was wearing her seat belt and did not suffer any serious injuries in the accident, according to Jackson.
