Trapped Driver

Lakeside, CA – April 11, 2015

Lakeside firefighters extricated a driver trapped in his vehicle following a high-speed rollover collision in northern Lakeside on Saturday, April 11, 2015. The vehicle sustained major damage after it veered off of southbound Hwy 67 just north of Slaughterhouse Canyon Road, coming to rest on its side after knocking down a chain link fence. Firefighters stabilized the vehicle and used hydraulic extrication tools to open the vehicle’s roof and gain access to the trapped driver. Lakeside firefighter-paramedics provided patient care throughout the incident and once extricated, immediately transported the driver to a local trauma center.
