    Stop beating yourself up - you acted appropriately, and since you did not detain the woman, no liability attaches to you.  Even if you had taken her car keys or otherwise prevented her from leaving the establishment, most states have a version of a "Good Samaritan" law which would provide immunity from civil actions.

    You did the right thing.  The rest of it is in the hands of whatever deity watches over such folk.

    Rest easy.
