Fatal Accident on Manor Road Near Jarrettsville Pike (Rescue Box 47-8)

March 6th, 2010

Early Saturday afternoon, units from Jacksonville and the surrounding area were dispatched for a car accident with entrapment in the area of Manor Road and Jarrettsville Pike. Engine 471 and Medic 475 responded immediately. Just after calling en-route, dispatch advised the units that additional calls were coming in reporting the patient was unconscious. At that time, Engine 471 requested the ETA for the medevac helicopter. Units arrived minutes later to find a single-vehicle that had struck a tree by the side of the road. It was then discovered that the driver was trapped and unconscious inside. The medevac was requested as personnel worked to treat and extricate the patient. Within minutes, he was extricated and stabilized for transport. The remainder of the assignment was cancelled with Engine 471 handling the landing site. The patient was transported to the trauma center where he later succumbed to his injuries. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the victim.

Jacksonville Units: E471, M475, SU476, U477
