Truck Accident with Entrapment - East Marlborough Township
By Firefighter Joshua May
January 18, 2022

Right before 0800 on Tuesday morning Po-Mar-Lin was dispatched for one vehicle flipped onto an embankment with one occupant trapped inside. Our station was staffed overnight and made a rapid response in Rescue 36. We arrived within three minutes and confirmed the report of entrapment. The Rescue's crew along with the Rescue crew from Longwood Fire Company stabilized the truck, accessed and assisted the patient, and started to cut the roof to allow the patient to get out. Engine 36 and Utility 36's crews arrived and assisted in creating a roof flap and extricated the one patient in eight minutes!

Thank you to Longwood EMS for assisting the patient once out of the vehicle.
