Vehicle Accident Sends Two to the Hospital

On April 12, 2012 at 3:00 PM, E521, C501 and E526 were dispatched to Interstate 40, mile marker 59 eastbound for a motor vehicle accident with reports of one person trapped under the vehicle. Units arrived on scene to find a single pickup truck that had rolled ejecting both of its occupants onto the shoulder with one occupant halfway under the truck. The victim was removed from under the vehicle and patient care was conducted. Patient #1 was transported to Kingman Regional by ground with life threatening injuries. Crews continued care on patient #2 while Guardian Air landed. The second patient was transported to Las Vegas by Angel 6 with life threatening injuries. The accident closed both lanes of eastbound traffic and was rerouted through exit 59. The accident is under investigation by the Dept. of Public Safety.
