Hamlin Morton Walker Fire, Kendall Fire and Monroe Ambulance responded for the report of an MVA with a vehicle into a tree with people trapped at 9:40 AM on September 21st at 16967 Roosevelt Highway. 2c14 and 2c34 responded with Engine 2425 and Rescue 2428 from Station 2 and Engine 2412 and Rescue 248 from Station 1.
2c14 arrived on scene confirming a 1 car MVA with the vehicle into a tree off the road and one occupant trapped. 2428 with a crew of 6 arrived and began vehicle stabilization and extrication efforts. 2425 with a crew of 4 arrived shortly after and set up a hose line for protection. 248 with a crew of 5 arrived and the manpower assisted in extrication efforts. 2412 with a crew of 4 arrived and stood by at the road for orders. Multiple hydraulic tools including the cutters, spreaders and rams where used to extricate the patient. With the extensive damage to the drivers side front and the anticipated time it would take to extricate the patient 2c14 requested Mercy Flight to the scene. 2412 and crew prepared to set up a landing zone in a field just East of the house. Mercy Flight was unable to fly due to weather conditions at this time.
The extrication team removed the drivers door and "rolled" the dash to gain access to the patient. The patient was removed through the back of the van due to it being the easiest access.
The patient was extricated in approximately 30 minutes from the original dispatch. Patient care was turned over to Kendall Ambulance and Monroe ALS providers.
Hamlin Morton Walker units where back in service at 11:10 AM after clean up of the scene.
