extricating the passenger from the vehicle.
E526 crew also began extrication on the passenger side to remove the patient which had significant hip and chest injuries. Crews successfully conducted a "side blitz" on the vehicle and removed the patient who was airlifted to an area hospital. The cause of the accident is being investigated by the Deptartment of Public Safety but is believed to be weather related. The slow lane of traffic was closed for approximately 2 hours while crews worked and the vehicle was removed.
