A good Samaritan pulled a woman out of her car after it went into a pond in Maplewood on Saturday afternoon.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the woman was in a car that was headed north on Highway 120. Another car was headed south on the highway in the left turn lane when it pulled in front of the woman, according to the State Patrol.

The two cars made contact, and the woman's car ended up going through a fence and into a pond.

Authorities say a man who was driving on a motorcycle behind one of the vehicles went in after her before emergency crews arrived.

The State Patrol says everyone was checked out at the scene and is OK.
