BERNE, N.Y.—A 6-year-old boy in upstate New York is being hailed as a hero for using his mother's cellphone to call 911 after her car crashed down a 150-foot embankment outside of Albany.

Authorities say Dolores Dober was driving on a road in the rural town of Berne Saturday afternoon when her car drifted into the other lane and she swerved to avoid a truck. Police say she overcompensated, causing the car to tumble down an embankment and flip over onto its roof.

Dober was stuck in her seat and was slipping in and out of consciousness.

Acting Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple tells the Times Union of Albany ( http://bit.ly/tfB7pg) that Dober's son, Aaron Wright, grabbed her cellphone, got out of the car, climbed the embankment and dialed 911.

Dober and Aaron were treated at a hospital and released.
