HARLINGEN – Several good Samaritans helped two girls who were trapped under a vehicle after it crashed into a Harlingen store.

"A lot of the time we see injuries that occur because people react too quickly and they have a tendency to just jerk them out of dangers way. And, unfortunately, sometimes those injuries may cause more injuries to the spine, neck to the person themselves,” he says.
