Friday morning, December 27, 2013 shortly before 6:30am Newtown Hook & Ladder was dispatched for a Motor Vehicle Accident with entrapment on Mount Pleasant Road near the intersection of Saw Mill Road. Rescue 113 & Engine 111 responded with Hawleyville Engine 331 to the scene and found one person trapped in the vehicle. Crews stabilized the vehicle with cribbing, removed the doors and the roof with The Jaws of Life™ and saws-all’s. Rescuer’s moved the dash board off the trapped driver with two hydraulic rams and come-a-long. Full access and removal from the vehicle was just over 30 minutes. The heavily traveled road was shut down for two to three hours during the investigation and clean-up.
