"The car just swerved across the road and went into a farm hedge.
"My husband managed to crawl out of the car through the back door but I'm disabled and I couldn't get out.
"I couldn't get a signal on my mobile phone and I was getting panicky. I felt absolutely helpless. It was a big shock.
"Then this couple in a 4x4 vehicle stopped - they were like saints."
Mrs Cossington said she does not know their names only that they had a boxer dog called Buster.
She believes they live at Buckland Newton and have a business using a low-loader for transporting vehicles.
The rescuers called the emergency service, calmed Mrs Cossington and helped her husband. They put the Honda on the low-loader and drove it and Mr and Mrs Cossington home.
Mrs Cossington said: "Luckily we were not injured just shaken up by it.
"And I realised afterwards that I don't know their names.
"I hope they see the Blackmore Vale Magazine so that I can say a huge thank you to them."
Mrs Cossington is also grateful to the ambulance and police who helped at the scene.
She added: "I couldn't believe it but a black car that was following us just drove on.
"Thank goodness these other people stopped. They were brilliant."
