Accident with Double Fly-Out on Manor Road (Rescue Box 38-8)

May 3rd, 2006

Just before 0200 hours Wednesday morning, Jacksonville responded with units from Long Green, Providence, Kingsville, and Texas to a reported motor vehicle accident. Additional information from the caller reported that a single vehicle had hit a pole, flipped onto its roof, was on fire, and had two people trapped inside. Engine 382 and IV 475 arrived simultaneously to find a fully involved convertible on its roof that had sheared a pole in half and had live electrical wires above it. BGE was immediately requested with an emergency response. It was unknown whether anyone was inside the vehicle at this point. The crew from E382 pulled an 1 ¾” crosslay and extinguished the fire within minutes. It was then discovered that the vehicle was unoccupied. Upon searching through the woods with thermal imaging cameras, it was discovered that two patients had been ejected from the vehicle. After evaluating the condition of the first patient and the mechanism of injury, Maryland State Police Trooper 1 was requested to expedite transport to the trauma center. Upon evaluation of the second patient, units at location requested a second helicopter. Patients were treated, packaged, and loaded into both helicopters. IV475 remained on the scene with multiple other units assisting police. Total time on scene was almost two hours.
