I was driving north on 787 near Menands, and I could see a back up, and came upon an accident in the south lane with cars parked in the north lane. Men were running carrying tools. As I jumped the guard rail I could see a car stopped in the middle lane a couple hundred feet to the south. I was impressed when seeing civilians rushing with power saws all working together to free the driver. I was wearing a vest and spent several minutes trying to clear the backup and get the help stuck in the backup to the crash site. The driver of the SUV on the rail was going north in the southbound lane.
