Richmond Handles MVA with Entrapment

On March 30, 2010, Richmond Fire units were dispatched to the intersection of Westwood and Moss Side for a motor vehicle accident with entrapment. E-14 arrived on scene with a two car accident confirming one person trapped. E-14 personnel worked to stabilize the vehicles as Rescue 2 began to extricate the patient. Q-6 established patient care while Q-16 personnel placed one hand line in service. The patient was extricated within 15 minutes and was transported by Richmond Ambulance Authority to an area hospital.
