Flinn Springs: On Wednesday, December 29, 2010, at 1:41 p.m., the Lakeside Fire Protection District received a report of a collision between a truck and large sedan at Olde Highway 80 and Pecan Park Lane. A structural engine, a rescue company, and an ALS ambulance were sent on the alarm.

Firefighters gather equipment before the careful removal of the injured parties.
Arriving units discovered a moderate velocity accident that resulted in a "T-Bone" type impact on a large sedan. On evaluation of the occupants, a total of three patients were identified. One occupant showed signs of a significant neck injury, so the decision was made to remove the backdoor of the vehicle so the patient could receive proper handling. In total, two patients were transported to Sharp Memorial Trauma Center for evaluation. A third occupant elected not to be transported by ambulance.
