Around 5:30 a.m. Friday August 8, 2008, units on Baltimore County’s westside were alerted for a reported auto accident with entrapment on Slade Avenue between Park Heights Avenue and Seven Mile Lane (Box 2-16). Upon arrival BCoFD Engine 2 (Pikesville career station) advised dispatch of 1 patient trapped, and requested a second medic unit for an additional patient. Arriving units found the driver of a minivan had apparently lost control rounding a curve, jumped a curb, struck a tree, crashed through a wooden fence and came to rest against another tree in the backyard of a house. The driver was able to remove themselves from the vehicle, but the passenger, who is believed to not have been wearing a seat belt, was pinned in the vehicle between the two front seats, suffering from significant injuries. Crews from Engine 2, Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company Squad 322, and BCoFD Truck 18 (Randallstown career station) worked together with multiple rescue tools to extricate the patient. The victim was medevaced via Maryland State Police Trooper 1 to Baltimore’s Shock Trauma Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries. Also on scene were BCoFD Medic 2 & Medic 14, PVFC IV325, BCoFD EMS 5 and Battalion Chief 22, and BCoFD Engine 14, who handled the landing zone for the helicopter. The crash is being investigated by the Baltimore County Police Department Accident Investigation Unit.
