SEPT 26, 2017 – OVERTURNED DUMP TRUCK WITH ENTRAPMENT ON BEAGLE RETREAT DR, DRIVER PINNED

At 1852, New Hope Station 2 was dispatched to the area of Old Watkins Rd and Beagle Retreat Dr for a reported overturned tractor trailer with the driver entrapped. Engine 4, Rescue 14 and Car 2 immediately responded. Engine 1 was at Station 2 for a meeting, so they added themselves to the call and responded as well. Rolesville E151 was also in the area, and offered to assist, which was much appreciated.

New Hope Car 2 (Deputy Chief Price) was first on scene, reporting an overturned dump truck at the end of Beagle Retreat Dr, with the driver still in the cab. Engine 4, Rescue 14 and Engine 1 arrived at the same time, with Engine 1’s crew assigned gaining access and assessing the patient, Engine 4’s crew assigned to mitigate the oil spill and pull a charged line, and Rescue 14 assigned to further stabilize the cab using their struts. Once the patient was assessed, the decision was made to extricate them via the front windshield of the cab.

Engine 4’s crew and Rolesville E151 removed both windshields, and cut the center support bar with our electric Hurst cutter, while Engine 1’s crew applied a KED. The patient was extricated shortly thereafter, and turned over to Wake EMS to transport to the hospital.
