Kitchener, Ontario firefighters responded to a report of an MVC with one vehicle upside down in the Grand River with entrapment, September 26, 2017 at 14:50. Three pumpers, rescue, aerial, haz mat, and chief responded to the call. Pump 2 arrived on scene reporting an SUV upside down in the river with an injured elderly women outside the car.

A passing motorist has been credited with saving the 80-year-old women’s life. The driver was unconscious with her head submerged in water when he cut her seat belt and pulled her from the vehicle. Firefighters and paramedics stabilized the patient on the side of the river. She was hoisted up in a stokes basket and transported to hospital.

Firefighters placed booms around the car to stop gas and oil from running down the river. A 60-ton rotator tow truck lifted the car from the river. Box 690 provided rehab to emergency crews on a very hot September afternoon. Southern Ontario was in a heat advisory with temperatures close to 100 F.

Ten people were injured, one critically, in a high-speed, five-car collision on Interstate 95 near the 64 mile marker southbound in Colleton County SC, Monday afternoon 22-May at 13:41. All vehicles were traveling southbound when several collided causing a Nissan Altima to drive under the trailer of a tractor-trailer truck. The car became wedged under the trailer and the rear tandem wheels drove up over the car crushing the front seat passenger in the car.

The 45-year old Florida woman was conscious, but suffered multiple traumatic injuries. The wheels of the trailer where on top of her legs. A military medic stopped and treated the woman prior to Fire-Rescue arriving. The southbound lanes of I-95 were blocked due to the wreckage and debris. Heavy traffic backed up for several miles, hampering emergency units from reaching the accident. Once on scene, Fire-Rescue units began treating the injured and stabilizing the tractor trailer and Nissan.

The female patient was found to be heavily entrapped in the wreckage with little access. There was approximately three feet of intrusion into the passenger compartment. Firefighter-paramedics treated her in the car and used Holmatro rescue tools to remove the driver’s side doors and roof. Other crewmembers built a box crib under the rear axles of the trailer, then used small hydraulic jacks and Holmatro high-pressure air bags to lift the trailer approximately 18 inches off of the car. A winch on a fire department vehicle was used to pull the car from under the trailer.

The patient remained trapped under the door and dash which was crushed down on her lower extremities. Crews rigged chains to the door and a nearby guard rail support, then used Holmatro spreaders to pull the door off of the patient. Another set of spreaders was used to displace the dash to free the patient. After 49 minutes, she was extricated with spinal precautions, then transported emergent to the trauma center at Trident Medical Center in Medic 26. No helicopters could fly due to poor weather conditions.

Two other patients were transported with non-life threatening injuries to Colleton Medical Center by Medic 9. The remaining patients were treated at the scene for various traumatic injuries, but did not require ambulance transportation. Southbound traffic on I-95 was backed up for eight miles. The SC Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

 Engine 5, Engine 26, Rescue 1, Medic 1, Medic 9, Medic 26, Car 105, Car 109, Car 110, Car 111, Car 116, and Car 118 responded. Battalion Chief Scott Feather served as Incident Commander.

Buffalo Grove (IL) police and firefighters were called to the scene of a two-car MVA Wednesday (6/15/16) at noon. Both drivers were injured and damage to the driver’s side of the sedan hampered access to remove the patient so a pin-in response was requested. Two engines, two ambulances, and the battalion were at the crash site in addition to several police officers. Two patients were transported to area hospitals.
