Lake Shore Box 20-15 Rollover w/Heavy Entrapment
Mike Hugg Media posted the pictures below from the rollover of a cement truck with the driver heavy trapped. The cement truck hit a utility pole and rolled over. Lake Shore Box 20-15 had units from Anne Arundel County Fire Department, Maryland State Police – Aviation Command, and Morton’s Towing & Recovery Inc responded to the area of Forest Glen Drive/West Drive where the accident took place. Due to the extended extrication time, members of the Shock Trauma GO-TEAM were requested to the scene. The driver was taken to Shock Trauma in Maryland with non-life threatening injuries. A friend of the driver posted on social media that he is alert at the hospital.

Stabilization, Lifting, and Vehicle Relocation
The bus was captured with struts for stabilization. The black guard rails on school buses are strong points for struts tips for stabilization and lifting.
The bus was rolled off the car with two griphoists anchored to the duals on a semi-tractor while the Paratech gold struts chased the movement automatically with air extended the struts.
