Today @ 13:44 hrs., Station 11, Medic 8 and Trooper 4 were dispatched to the area of I-95 NB / Marsh Road off-ramp for a MVC with entrapment. Within minutes Rescue 11 along with Engine 11-5 made the response along with Engine 13-5 and Rescue 13, both already on the road. Units arrived and reported a pickup truck nose down in Shellpot Creek with (1) subject trapped. Crews from both Station 11 & 13 quickly went to work with stabilizing the vehicle and removing trees / branches to gain access to the trapped patient. The patient was extricated in (25) minutes and transported by Ambulance B-11. Units remained on scene for approximately (3) hours while B&F Towing removed the vehicle while DNREC crews checked the creek for any fluid run-off.

Thanks to all of the members from Station 11 & Station 13 who worked tirelessly during this challenging extrication. Great Team Effort!
