Local nurse saves a driver on the road after dangerous crash

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- A local nurse hailed as a hero for her quick-thinking after a car crash near Mishawaka High School.

Nicole Filippone saw the driver crash into a house on Lincoln Way East on Wednesday and she jumped into action.

She noticed the man was unconscious and she performed CPR until emergency crews arrived.  

Filippone is a nurse at Memorial Hospital in South Bend.

"I stopped because any person should stop. Like it was a scary situation, you don't know what the outcome could be,” said Filippone.

The 30-year-old driver is still in the hospital in serious condition.
