At approximately 0130 hours on Saturday morning, units from Station 47 were alerted to respond to a report of a vehicle accident with rollover in the area of Sweet Air Road and Manor Glen Court. Engine 473 and Paramedic 475 responded on the initial call. Both units arrived minutes later to find a small car on its roof and partially in a ditch on the side of the road. As personnel were approaching the scene, a civilian was assisting the driver out of the rear window. After a quick assessment of the patient's injuries and signs of loss of consciousness, it was determined that the best means of transporting the patient would be by Maryland State Police Helicopter. Trooper 8 was requested with a 15 minute ETA. The patient was stabilized and transported by ground to the landing site on the helipad at Station 47. EMS 7 and Engine 471 assisted with additional patient treatment and securing the landing site. The patient was loading into the helicopter and transported to the trauma center.
