Engine 27, Engine 26, Rescue 22, and the district 4 chief were dispatched to a wreck at the intersection of Flave Pierce Road and Airport Boulevard in front of Baker High School at about 7:00PM Friday February 8, 2013.
When the captain and crew of Engine 27 arrived on the scene of the wreck they found a SUV that had T-boned a car that had caused the driver to be trapped within the vehicle.
The crew members of Engine27 quickly sprang into action and grabbed equipment necessary to extricate the trapped person from the crushed car.
The Jaws of Life was used to open the driver’s door and freed the driver so rescue crews could remove the driver and transport him to a local hospital for treatment.
The driver and passengers of the SUV were a little shaken up but none of the occupants of the SUV were taken to the hospital for treatment.
This wreck could have been worse if there had been a person sitting in the passenger’s seat of the car because the entire passenger side of the car was caved in where a person would have sat.
Both vehicles were badly enough damaged that both had to be towed from the accident scene.
