MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) - Peggy Ray didn't think twice when she stopped her car and ran to help victims of an accident on Interstate 5 near the Seattle suburb of Everett.

She crawled through a broken window Saturday and helped stabilize a bleeding driver and his passenger until an emergency crew arrived to rescue the people trapped in the partially submerged car.

But Ray told KOMO-TV ( http://bit.ly/ZBPOg3) that when she returned to her vehicle, $900 had been taken from her purse. It represented two weeks' work for the Marysville barista who supports six teenage kids.

Ray says someone else who pulled over at the accident scene likely took the money from her purse.

Washington state troopers are investigating and hope a tip might lead to an arrest.
