EASTCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Yankees manager Joe Girardi capped off
a victorious evening by helping a car crash victim in suburban New

Police say Girardi pulled over to help after a woman lost control on a Westchester County parkway and crashed into a wall around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

That was just hours after Girardi's team claimed a World Series victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Girardi tells WFAN-AM that he was "really concerned" because of damage to her car. He says he had his wife call 911, then approached the mangled vehicle.

The woman had only cuts, and police arrived minutes later.

Officer Kathleen Cristiano says that seeing Girardi at the accident scene later "was totally surreal."
