Just before 1500 hours on Saturday, units from Jacksonville and surrounding stations were alerted for a car accident with people trapped in the area of Manor Road and Jarrettsville Pike. Jacksonville’s Engine 473 and IV 475 responded on the initial call. Units arrived minutes later at Jarrettsville Pike and the Harford County line to find head-on collision. After a brief investigation, units discovered a total of three patients. Two were trapped in one cars and a third patient was trapped in the other car. Command was established and four additional medic units were requested along with two Maryland State Police Helicopters. As additional units arrived, crews worked to extricate, treat, and package the patients for transport. After patients were transported to trauma centers, personnel worked to mitigate spilled fluids from the vehicles. Units were on the scene over an hour before going back in service.
