Rollover In Columbia Pa.


I came across this crash today within seconds of it coming to a rest upside down in the median along Route 30 near Columbia in Lancaster County. Dusted off my EMT skills and provided care for the front seat passenger that was injured until firefighters from Lancaster County station 80 arrived. The injured occupant was not trapped nor confined just in a awkward position to backboard. Station 80 firefighters looked superb coming off the rescue tools in hand ready to work. First attempt at the cutting the seats out was hampered so firefighters removed back window and got the patient boarded extricating him through the rear window. Special thanks to Susquehanna Fire & Rescue and Columbia #1 firefighters and Lancaster County police officers for allowing 911 photography to remain on scene after I was done assisting with care of the injured.
