MVC with entrapment on I-95
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Just after 10am Sunday morning the rescue was dispatched to I-95 Southbound near the state line for an MVC. Rescue, engine and deputy 13 made the response within seconds. Ambulance C13 had just cleared a call and was on the way as well. Communications then advised this MVC was possibly in the woods. but getting conflicting locations reports on the exact location. C13 found the single vehicle wreck a bit more south, just prior to Harvey road overpass. Rescue and engine crews went to work gaining patient access which included cutting down a small tree which the vehicle was pinned against. Deputy 13 (E.Hassel) took command as the OIC of our rescue (A.Webster), assumed operations. Using two hydraulic tools, chain saw, stokes basket and some rigging, the patient was freed and brought to our ambulance in approximately 22 minutes. Assisting us on scene was Delco 39 and Medic-8. (Trooper-4 was down due to weather)

Crews handled 2 additional MVC’s for the day and a box alarm, assisting Aston township.
