Just after 900 hours on Saturday, units from Jacksonville and Long Green were dispatched for a single-vehicle accident in the area of Fork Road and Long Green Road. Engine 382 and IV 475 responded on the call. Units arrived minutes later to find an UTZ truck had struck a telephone pole near the intersection. Personnel worked to stabilize the truck and initiate patient care. After a brief assessment, it was determined that the driver was a priority one patient and had to be flown to the trauma center. MSP Trooper 1 was then requested by E382 with E381 handling the landing site. Units operated on location for just under an hour.
