About 10 clowns had finished putting on a show at Berkeley Avenue Elementary School in Westwood on Monday and departed in their respective cars. But the clowns' cars came to a halt when they saw another clown in need.

Jack "Poppi T Clown" Erbstein tells The Record (http://bit.ly/1nCrUiK ) that the woman was reaching for a GPS device that fell off the windshield when she veered off the road.

Police Chief Frank Regino says the 68-year-old sustained minor injuries.

The clowns are members of Call Us Clowns, a not-for-profit organization that performs clown shows at schools and hospitals.
