At 0013 hours early Friday morning 3 July 2020, Rescue Squad 7 was alerted to the Thomas Johnson bridge for a reported motor vehicle accident with entrapment. Shortly after dispatch Rescue Squad 7 responded and arrived on scene with Solomon’s Squad 3 to find a head on style collision with patients heavily pinned in both vehicles. Upon arrival 1 patient was pronounced deceased on the scene and both units then went to work to complete a rapid extrication of the second victim. That patient was extricated and transported to a trauma hospital. Rescue Squad 7 and crew went in-service shortly after the extrication was completed.
We would like to send our condolences to all family members and friends of the deceased victim during this difficult time of their loss.
