On Tuesday, June 28,2011, at 11:09 p.m., the Lakeside Fire Protection District received reports of a traffic collision on southbound Highway 67, just south of Mapleview Street. A rescue response was sent that included a structural pumper, rescue company, an ALS medic unit, and battalion chief (Lawler).

Lakeside Fire personnel begin the extrication on the vehicle.
On the arrival of Engine 1 (Riverview Station), they reported a single occupant trapped in a vehicle that had sustained a major impact to the rear of the vehicle. The victim was assessed by the paramedic on the engine company and it was determined that his injuries were actually mild given the impact to the small subcompact.

While not visible from the front, this vehicle took a significant impact.
On the arrival of Rescue 3 and Medic 3 (Lake Jennings Station), the extrication and removal of the patient was completed. The patient was transported by Medic 3 to Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa for further evaluation of his injuries.

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