Vehicle Into a House (Toledo, OH)

In October of 2021, Toledo Fire & Rescue was dispatched to reports of a vehicle into a house. The vehicle lost control and entered the home inverted trapping two occupants of the car. Technical Rescue team members worked to shore the structure as additional crews extricated the two occupants of the vehicle. One of them suffered fatal injuries, the other was transported to a local trauma center with life-threatening injuries. Firefighters were able to remove the uninjured occupant of the home through a second window by ladder. No firefighter injuries were reported with this incident.
