On Sunday night at 2317 hours, the 95-93 South Rescue Box was struck for the reported vehicle accident with entrapment, southbound I-95 on the Millard Tydings Memorial Bridge. Dispatch advised all units that they were receiving multiple reports of several tractor trailers overturned on the bridge with entrapment. Deputy Chief 5, Chief 5-2 & Medic 591 were first on scene and reported two separate accidents, each involving an overturned tractor trailer, with one of the drivers unable to exit his tractor. Quint 5 was next on scene at the tractor with the occupant still inside and quickly went to work removing the windshield to extricate the patient. While that patient was being removed, Engine 512's crew checked the vehicle for any additional hazards, while Engine 515's crew checked the second incident for hazards, both of which proved negative. One patient was transported to Bayview Trauma Center by Cecil Medic 692 & remaining crews cleared shortly after. Both accidents were determined to be caused by strong winds.
