Fatal MVC with 2 trapped

Dec 2, 2018

Just before 11am, again the rescue company was dispatched for another MVC. This time, Interstate 495 just north of Philadelphia Pike. Deputy 13 (E.Hassel), our EMS and rescue arrived to find a 3 vehicle accident involving a tractor trailer with two subjects trapped. Crews stabilized the vehicle, put a hand line and several hydraulic tools in service and freed both trapped patients before the first 10 minute mark. The injured were handed off to Medic 4 and our EMS. Trooper-4 was used to transport a trauma victim and the rest went via ground. Claymont Command asked for Hazmat 30 and DNREC to assist us at the scene due to the amount of fluids spilled from the tractor. Sadly, one victim succumbed to their injuries. The roadway was closed for several hours while DSP investigated this fatal MVC. Within the last 2 days, we’ve handled 7 MVC’s, 3 of those were with entrapment with 1 fatality and multiple injuries. PLEASE drive carefully, eliminate the distractions and please buckle up!
