The volunteer fire companies of Cardiff and Bargaintown responded to English Creek and Dogwood Avenues, for a report of an MVA with possible entrapment. Units arrived to find one vehicle off the highway with the driver still inside, and a second vehicle in the roadway and all occupants out. The vehicle that left the roadway was a full-size SUV that careened through the traffic light control boxes and a light standard at the intersection, jamming the driver’s door. The door was opened by firefighters who assisted EMS with the removal of the injured driver. Firefighters opened the hood of the SUV to disconnect its battery, and stood by until all of the vehicles were removed. Also responding were EHT Ambulance and Atlanticare Paramedics.
