Jacksonville First Arriving on MVC with Entrapment in Long Green (Rescue Box 38-10)

December 10th, 2009

Friday afternoon, Long Green and Jacksonville were alerted for an accident in the 5200 block of Hydes Road involving a truck on fire with no further information on injuries. Just as Engine 473 called responding, the call was upgraded to a rescue assignment with auto fire. Engine 473 arrived to find a van that had collided with a pickup truck pulling a trailer. The driver of the van was found to be heavily trapped and the passenger of the van had been ejected. MSP Trooper 1 was immediately called to the scene and a second transport unit was called. Crews worked to extricate the patient while Engine 481 secured a landing site. The patient was extricated in about 15 minutes and transported to the trauma center.
