Description of Incident:

Colonial Park’s Rescue/Engine 33-1 was dispatched for a report of an accident with injuries on Interstate 81 North near mile post 70.4. Crews arrived to find one car under a tractor trailer with the driver entrapped. While requesting an additional rescue, crews used the Amkus Spreaders to open the rear door and allowing EMS to access the patient during the prolonged extrication. Rescue / Engine 34-1 arrived as well as South Central EMS to assist with the operation. The driver of Rescue / Engine 33-1 began to establish connections for a winch to be used to pull the vehicle from under the trailer while other personnel continued with the Amkus heavy duty cutters to begin a roof removal. As the car was winched from under the trailer, the complete roof was removed by all personnel. With both driver side doors and the roof removed, and the vehicle winched from under the trailer, crews were able to remove the single occupant who was transferred to EMS.
