vehicle off road

rescue crews from Lloydsville, Crabtree and Latrobe were dispatched to a reported vehicle into a garage in the area of Latrobe Crabtree Road & Cramer Road. Chief 114 arrived on scene to find one vehicle off the road into a garage type structure. Command confirmed that there was one patient trapped in the vehicle while the structure was beginning to collapse. Crews used rescue struts to secure the structure’s wooden floor, roof and the vehicle so that the patient could safely be extricated. Miraculously, the patient only sustained minor injuries.
