Wilfork helps police free woman from Jeep after it rolls over


FOXBORO - Vince Wilfork's work wasn't quite done after the Patriots won the AFC Championship on Sunday.

Wilfork stopped at an accident scene on Route 1 around 12:45 a.m. Monday. When Massachusetts State Police arrived on scene, they found Wilfork next to the vehicle checking on the driver.

Wilfork then removed 38-year-old Mary Ellen Brooks, of Hanson, from her 2015 Jeep Wrangler as a trooper held the door open.

Brooks's SUV had rolled onto its side after an accident and she was unable to free herself.

Wilfork left after making sure the troopers didn't need any more help.

Police charged Brooks with operating under the influence of alcohol and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

The Foxboro Fire Department and EMS also responded to the scene.
