Rose Cauthen just finished paying her electric bill Friday when she saw an SUV land in a ditch upside down.
She screamed and then got out of her car to help.
Thomas Everett Baker, 62, of Rock Hill was driving a red 2000 GMC Jimmy SUV on the S.C. 9 Bypass when he ran off the road and landed in a ditch in front of the Townview Center strip mall.
The wreck happened shortly after noon.
Cauthen said Baker, who was traveling westbound on the bypass, swerved into the other side of the four-lane highway and was riding in the median momentarily.
