University of Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein confirmed the reports on his personal Twitter account.
"Harrell helped the driver, reportedly a man, out of an overturned, smoking vehicle, working with others to kick in a window. He also ran to a nearby business to procure a fire extinguisher."
According to the Courier-Journal, Louisville police listed it as a non-injury accident. Two vehicles were involved in the crash, with one person taken to the hospital for a possible minor injury.
It's been a good week for Harrell, who agreed to terms on a three-year deal with Houston the day after coming to the aid of the motorist, according to Yahoo’s Marc Spears.
