A Ford Escape traveling north on Interstate 279 crashed Saturday night after swerving from the left lane to the right, crossing two lanes of traffic, striking a concrete barrier and rolling over onto its passenger side, police said.

University of Pittsburgh basketball coach Jamie Dixon stopped to help, according to police.

The vehicle's passenger, Diane Robinson, 48, of Zelienople was in fair condition Sunday in Allegheny General Hospital, North Side, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The driver fled the scene after being extricated from the vehicle, according to the state police.

Dixon helped pull one of the occupants from the vehicle and suffered injuries to his hands, police said. He was treated at the scene by emergency personnel.
