LIMA, Ohio (AP) -- Police in northwest Ohio say a woman who suddenly drove her car into a crowded town square while bystanders attended a weekly community event is cooperating with authorities.
 
Lima Police Detective Steve Stechschulte said the 63-year-old woman was not hurt in the Friday night crash that injured about 30 people. Police are not identifying her.
 
Stechschulte says she has been released pending further investigation.
 
Police say the woman's car plowed through the crowd, sending some through the air and pinning others under the vehicle. Authorities and witnesses say bystanders helped lift it.
