Victorville, Just before 12:35 p.m Wednesday, ‪#‎SBCoFD‬ received reports of a traffic collision in the area Green Tree Blvd and First Avenue. A traffic collision with injuries was dispatched which included one Paramedic Engine and an AMR ambulance.

While enroute additional reports stated victims were possibly trapped. The assignment was modified at that point to include a Paramedic Truck company and a Chief Officer. The first arriving engine reported one immediate driver trapped in a collision involving a mid sized vehicle and a garbage truck. Crews initiated extrication as well as patient care to the victim trapped inside.

The vehicle sustained major front end and drivers side damage. Firefighters used multiple hydraulic powered extrication tools to remove the vehicle from around the patient.

Once the victim was transported to the landing zone at Victor Valley Hospital he was evaluated and stabilized.
