New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork went from helping wreck the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night to helping a woman from out of her wrecked vehicle.

On his way driving home from Gillette Stadium at around 12:45 a.m., the 325-pound Wilfork stopped to the aid of a 38-year-old woman who was trapped in her Jeep Wrangler which had rolled over, the Massachusetts State Police said in a statement.

A trooper arrived and held open the side door as Wilfork reached in and helped the woman out of the vehicle with "one hand," per the police report.

"I just wanted to get her to safety," Wilfork told reporters Monday, per NFL Media's Jeff Darlington.

The woman was placed under arrest on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
