Motor Vehicle Collision with Entrapment

At 23:19 hours on Saturday 22 September E 12 – 22 was alerted for a MVC response, possible entrapment, in the 12000 block of North State Highway 5.  On arrival of E 12 – 22 Acting Captain Baker confirmed that one person was trapped and that units would be taking actions.   Vehicle stabilization was accomplished by using cribbing and the Rescue Jack system.  Hydraulic rescue tools and saw-z-alls were used to remove the vehicle’s roof and driver’s door.  The patient was extricated on a long spine board and transferred to the care of a Lake West EMS unit.

Units remained on the scene for approximately one hour to provide lighting for the investigation and assist with traffic control.  A special thanks to all the volunteers that responded when the assignment was re-toned.  The extra hands made a big difference.
