MVA with Entrapment

Birmingham Fire & Rescue

Engine 23 and Rescue 1 responded to an MVA involving a 10-wheeled transfer truck and a car on Eastlake Blvd. this morning. Upon arrival, Engine 23 reported a patient trapped and requested 1's Heavy Rescue.

The damage to the car made it hard for firefighters to free the patient but, with some delicate work, the lady was freed.

Units on the scene were Engine 23, Engine 9, Rescue 1, Rescue 6, 1's Heavy Rescue, Battalion 3, Battalion 4 and Redbird Chief.


This picture was taken just after the wreck occurred...
