Units Handle Accident with Medevac (Local Box 47-10)

February 6th, 2008

At approximately 1300 hours on Wednesday, Jacksonville was alerted for a reported 10-50 Advise (a car accident with unknown injuries) in front of Chestnut Grove Church on Sweet Air Rd. Engine 473 responded and arrived within minutes to find a single vehicle that had left the road, struck a parked car, and ran into a concrete sign. Ironically, the same sign was destroyed last March, and repairs had just completed less than two months ago. IV 475 was called to the scene when it was discovered that the elderly driver of the car was seriously injured. It was ultimately decided to airlift the driver to Shock Trauma. E473 set up a landing zone at the scene while the medic crew tended to the injured driver.
