Lakeside Firefighters Respond to Hwy 67 Rollover

Lakeside - Firefighters from Lakeside's Riverview fire station (fs1) responded to a rollover vehicle accident on southbound Hwy. 67 just north of Riverford Rd. at 3:49 p.m., Saturday, November 13, 2010. Engine and Medic 1 arrived on scene to find that the two occupants of the single-vehicle accident had self-extricated from the vehicle. The two-door SUV reportedly swerved to miss some debris in the highway and rolled multiple times before coming to rest in a group of trees on the southbound shoulder. Both occupants, who were wearing seat belts, suffered minor injuries and were transported by Lakeside firefighter-paramedics to an area hospital. Engine 1's crew remained on scene to secure the vehicle and scene until a tow truck could remove the SUV.

This incident is another great reminder of the importance of using seatbelts.

Despite the damage, occupants suffered minor injuries.
