Occupants Escape with Minor Injuries on Highway 8 Business

Glenview: On Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010 at 9:39 AM, the Lakeside Fire District dispatched an engine company, rescue company, ALS ambulance, and Battalion Chief to a reported vehicle accident in the 13500 block of Highway 8 Business. On the arrival of Rescue 3 (Lake Jennings Station) they encountered two vehicles with significant damage, and some property damage as a result of one of the cars leaving the roadway.

Lakeside Fire personnel assess a victim of this moderate velocity accident.
On initial assessment paramedics initiated treatment on an occupant that complained of neck pain. All other occupants denied injury. Fortunately because of the use of shoulder and lap restraints by all parties none of the injuries are considered "life threatening".

CHP is currently investigating the accident. A total of 9 Lakeside Fire personnel responded to the incident.
