SQUAD 12 SPECIAL CALLED TO RT.2 AND MARLEY STATION RD

Tuesday, April 2, 2013  Around 1300 hrs Engine 181 and EMS units were dispatched for an MVC - Car in a ditch at the intersection of Ritchie Hwy and Marley Station Rd in the 1811 box. Engine 181 arrived to find a car about 10’ down an embankment with the occupant still inside and requested the rescue assignment. After the rescue assignment was dispatched, Engine 181 special requested Squad 12 due to the nature of the incident. There was no actual entrapment but the car was very unstable so crews went to work placing two struts on the downhill side of the vehicle. Squad 12 arrived and positioned to use the front winch to further stabilize the car. Once the vehicle was stabilized a basic haul system was setup with the stokes basket to bring the patient up the hill. The patient was transported by PM31 and the scene was turned over to AAPD.
