Driver Suffers Minor Injuries after Significant Vehicle Accident

Flinn Springs-

On Wednesday, February 8, 2012, at 8:15 a.m., the Lakeside Fire District received a report that a vehicle had come off of Interstate 8 and had come to rest in the rear parking-lot of a business in the 9400 block of Bond Ave. A structural engine, rescue company, ALS medic unit, and a division chief were dispatched to the incident.

Lakeside Fire personnel assess the driver for injuries, Damage to the vehicle suggest it rolled over at least once.
On the arrival of Rescue 3 and Medic 3, firefighters located a compact sedan that had rolled down the embankment from the eastbound lanes of Interstate 8 to a  parking area on Bond Ave. Crews made patient contact and discovered the occupant had only minor complaints of pain. Fortunately the occupant was wearing her seat belt which obviously factors into the fact there were no significant injuries.

The vehicle fortunately came to rest in some unoccupied parking spaces.
After assessment, the patient was transported in Medic 3 to Sharp-Grossmont Hospital for further evaluation. Currently CHP is investigating the accident.

A total of 9 Lakeside Fire personnel responded to the incident.
