Units Handle Overturned SUV with Medevac (Local Box 47-9)

July 23rd, 2008

Just after 1600 hours on Wednesday, a caller to Station 47 advised of a vehicle that had rolled over in the area of Papermill Road and Sunnybrook Road. Engine 473 and IV 475 called en-route just as the 911 Center was dispatching the same call. While units were en-route, EMS 7 was added to the call after an off-duty EMT on the scene recommended aviation. E473 and IV475 arrived minutes later in the 2600 block of Papermill Road to find an SUV that had run up on a bank, impacted a tree, turned over, and then slid along the road approximately 100 feet before striking a guardrail. After investigating the scene, it was determined that the only occupant of the vehicle was out of the car. A medevac helicopter was requested after a brief evaluation. Crews worked to stabilize the patient and transport her to the landing site handled by Engine 471 at Station 47.
