At 7:31am, New Hope Rescue 14 & Engine 4 were dispatched to a motor vehicle crash at the intersection of Buffaloe Rd & Forestville Rd. Units arrived on scene to find a T-bone collision, with one of the drivers trapped in the vehicle. Engine 1 was added to the assignment, and the crew from Rescue 14 went to work freeing the driver from the vehicle. After a performing a door pop, the crews were able to extricate the drive, and he was turned over to Eastern Wake EMS for transport to the hospital. WHNFD crews cleared the scene in under an hour, and turned the scene over to the NC Highway Patrol for investigation.
At 05:15am, New Hope Stations 1 & 2 were dispatched to I-540 in the area of the Triangle Town Center Blvd exit for a report of an overturned vehicle. Chief 100 (Chief McCaulley) arrived first, and advised communications that he had a vehicle that had ran off the highway and was wedged between the exit ramp and the highway, leaning over the wall, with 1 person entrapped. Due to the positioning of the vehicle, he requested Raleigh FD Rescue 1 to respond to the scene.
Crews from New Hope Engine 1 and Rescue 14 assisted the RFD Rescue 1 firefighters with stabilizing the vehicle and extricating the driver. The driver was extricated and turned over to Wake County EMS, who transported him to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Engine 1 stood by until the tow truck operator was able to pull the car free. Once the car was pulled back several feet, it promptly fell onto the exit ramp, where it was removed by the tow truck.
