Extrication In North Long Beach

By Jackawa Jackson | June 22, 2010


On the morning of June 22, 2010 just before 11:00, units from the Long Beach Fire Department responded to the corner of Del Amo Blvd and Virginia Avenue to a report of a vehicle into a power pole with one patient trapped.  Truck 11 was first to arrive on scene and reported that a small sedan had, in fact, impacted a power pole pinning the 55-year-old male driver in the wreckage.  Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to cut the man from his vehicle and had him free with in 10 minutes.  The driver was transported to a local trauma center in moderate distress.  Fortunately the power pole remained upright and there did not appear to be any loss of power to local home or businesses.  There were no other vehicles involved in this accident.  The cause of the collision is currently under investigation.  A total of 11 firefighters responded to this incident.
