Seat Belts Factor in Highway 8 Accident

Glenview: On Monday, May 3rd, 2010 at 9:36 AM, the Heartland Communications Center dispatched an engine company and an ALS ambulance to the intersection of Aurora Drive and Highway 8 Business for a reported vehicle accident.

On the arrival of Engine 3 and Medic 3 (Lake Jennings Station) they discovered two vehicles with significant damage from a moderate speed collision. As crews evaluated the scene they were surprised that this significant accident had resulted in a single patient with minor injuries. It was determined that all parties were wearing lap and shoulder restraints, which ultimately prevented more significant injuries.

Lakeside Paramedics transported one occupant to Grossmont District Hospital for further evaluation.

CHP is investigating the accident. A total of 5 Lakeside Fire personnel responded to the incident.
