Run- Single Vehicle Rollover with Entrapment

Car in snowbank

Around 0840 this morning French Village Fire was dispatched for a reported single vehicle rollover with entrapment. Three companies and both chiefs responded to find a vehicle off the roadway unstable in the ditch with one occupant trapped inside uninjured. While crews were making patient contact the driver alerted crews on scene that he was transporting radioactive medical material in the back hatch compartment (No Damage whatsoever was noted to the shielded transport containers). Crews utilized squad 2810’s rescue struts to stabilize the vehicle and then used extrication tools to free the patient. The patient was turned over to Abbott EMS. Thank you to Illinois State Police District 11 Collinsville for providing assistance on scene.
