Witnesses helped rescue an Auburn woman from her car after it crashed into a Greyhound bus Sunday night.

Auburn police said Shannon Sylvester pulled onto Washington Street at 7:30 p.m. and was hit by the bus.

Sylvester was transported to Central Maine Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.

There were 34 passengers on the bus.

None of the passengers were injured, police said.

According to investigating officers, Sylvester failed to yield the right away as she was exiting the Washington Street trailer park.

Sylvester was summonsed for violation of bail, unlawful possession of a schedule W drug and unlawful possession of marijuana, according to police.

Aprill Clark said she was among the people who helped Sylvester after the accident.

Clark said Sylvester was unconscious at first and then gained consciousness.

Neighbors brought Sylvester inside, and that’s when she said she was having a hard time seeing over the snowbanks in the dark, according to Clark.

As she edged out, that’s when the bus hit her, Clark said.
