At 0750 hours Squad 2, Squad 5, Company 29, Company 59, and SMALS were dispatched to Budds Creek Road and Mechanicsville Road for the “T-Bone” Style collision with one trapped.

Command 2 and Squad 2 arrived to find 2 vehicles with 2 patients, one requiring extrication. Command 2 established command and the Squad crew went to work removing the drivers side of the vehicle to extricate the patient.

A helo was requested for the trapped patient. Engine 24 responded to establish a landing zone at Chaptico Park. The patient was subsequently flown by Trooper 7 to PG hospital.
