The driver of a pick-up truck lost control of the vehicle and slammed into a tree on Morton Road. The impact bent the truck around the tree and the trunk of the tree ended-up in the passenger compartment. The driver was alert but trapped in the vehicle.
2C11, 2C21 and 2C31 along with 2C14 were quickly on scene as was Morton’s Rescue 218 and Engine 215 and Hamlin’s 248. Extrication tools were employed from both rescues to remove the doors of the vehicle and to expand the opening of the door area to allow victim removal. The driver was treated and transported BLS by Hamlin Ambulance.
