A Long Island, New York, woman allegedly mowed down her cousin twice with a minivan after a Facebook-fueled catfight over a man -- leaving the victim helpless in the middle of a busy road on a freezing night, sources said.

Giselle Penagos, 21, required emergency surgery Monday to fix a broken leg and shattered pelvis after she and her cousin Melanie Spanopoulos sparred viciously over a cyber-Casanova during a wild car ride.

Luckily, an unidentified man rescued Penagos as she lay bleeding in Elmont, New York, early Monday morning and rushed her to her father's house in Queens.

"If it wasn't for the good Samaritan, she could very easily have been hit by another car," Nassau County Detective Sgt. Robert Galgano said.

The temperature was in the single digits and Penagos, unable to move due to her injuries, also might have died of exposure.

"I don't know what to say, it was just crazy. I was so scared," Penagos told The New York Post from her bed at Elmhurst Hospital.
