Roll-Over on Highway 67 sends one to the Trauma Center

Moreno Valley: On Sunday, March 7th 2010 at 1:19 PM, the Heartland Communications Center dispatched two engine companies, one rescue company, one ALS ambulance, and a Battalion Chief, to a reported "roll over vehicle accident" on Highway 67 just south of Vigilante Rd. Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Medic 71 had come across the accident while returning from a previous call.

On the arrival of Engine Company 1 and Medic 1 (Riverview Station) they discovered a single vehicle that had rolled into the southbound lanes of Highway 67. Crews assessed the occupant and determined that her injuries required that she be transported to a trauma center. After the assessment the patient was transported via Medic 1 to Sharp Trauma in Kearny Mesa. Battalion 1 (Laff) assumed Highway 67 IC and directed crews at the incident.

The Lakeside Fire District received assistance from the Santee Fire Department. Currently the CHP is investigating the incident.
