Vehicle Accident on Lake Jennings Park Road Sends Two to Trauma Center

Lake Jennings Area-

On Sunday, August 4th, 2013 at 5:22 PM, the Lakeside Fire Protection District received 911 calls reference a vehicle collision on Lake Jennings Park Rd below the water treatment plant. A rescue company and an ALS medic unit were dispatched from the Lake Jennings Fire Station. While en-route an additional engine company from the River Park Fire Station was added to the response.

The crew from Rescue 3 and Medic 3 prepare a patient for immediate transport.

This amount of driver-side damage is typically a sign of severe intrusion into the occupants.
Arriving units discovered two vehicles with significant damage. One patient presented with severe injuries and was immediately transported to Sharp Memorial Trauma Center via Medic 3 (Lake Jennings Fire Station). An additional ALS medic unit was requested to transport a second patient. Medic 2, from the River Park fire station, responded and transported their victim to Sharp Memorial. None of the injuries appear to be life threatening.
