Head-On Traffic Collision on Ashwood Street

On Wednesday afternoon, October 6, 2010,  just before 5:00 p.m., firefighters from Lakeside's Riverview Fire Station (fs1) were dispatched to reports of a head-on traffic collision in front of El Capitan High School.  On arrival, fire crews found two compact sedans in the roadway with moderate vehicle damage.  Luckily no one was trapped in either car and one person was transported to an area hospital.  This scene could have been much worse if seatbelts had not been worn.

The incident was handled by Lakeside Engine 1, Medic 1, and Battalion 1.  Santee Rescue 5 was dispatched to assist but they were canceled before they arrived on scene.
