Last Saturday in Tucson, Arizona, a single-car accident occurred as the driver smashed into a median on the highway, seriously injuring herself in the process.
Northwest Fire District spokesman, Captain Adam Goldberg stated that they received the call reporting the accident and were dispatched to the scene at around 2 a.m.
Emergency crews arrived and found a four-door sedan that was tangled in cables which prevented other vehicles from traving into oncoming lanes, having smashed into a median on the Interstate 10 near Sunset Road. Further, paramedics and firefighters were unable to open any of the doors, because these cables required heavy machinery to move them.
A paramedic was able to assess and treat the victim through a window of the car until the police were able to use the Jaws of Life, a hydraulic rescue tool, to remove the roof the the vehicle and snatch the patient out.
She was transported the trauma center at a local hospital, and is said to be in serious, but stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials stated the investigation into the wreck is ongoing, and they will be actively searching into the details of the crash.
