Greeley Fire Saves Driver Trapped In Vehicle Following Crash
A driver was rescued from a vehicle after being trapped inside it following a crash over the weekend in Greeley.
According to an official news release, the Greeley Fire Department (GFD) responded to a report of a vehicle that crashed into a front door in the 1200 block of 4th Street at 4:20 a.m. on Sunday (Aug. 22). When crews arrived at the scene, they discovered the house was not involved in the crash.
Rather, the vehicle - a Dodge pickup truck - had struck a parked car and a tree before coming to rest in a front yard, as per a Greeley Fire Department news release from Sunday.
The driver’s legs were trapped in the damaged truck as a result of the crash.
Crew members with the fire department used multiple extrication tools to disentangle the driver, whose legs were trapped in the heavily damaged vehicle.
The individual was transported to Northern Colorado Medical Center by Banner Paramedic Services following the extrication; fortunately, the driver's leg injuries were non life-threatening.
The individual involved in the early Sunday morning crash has yet to be formally identified by officials.
