Another Rollover

Saturday morning we were again dispatched to Highway 62 and Indian for a TC. This time AMR arrived on scene first and informed us that it was about a half mile East of 62 on Indian. It was a single vehicle rollover with only one patient. She sustained minor injuries. We assisted AMR with treating the patient and disconnected the battery for the tow truck driver. We disconnect the battery on all traffic accidents so as to mitigate the chance of an accidental airbag deployment (this doesn't mean that it can go off, just that it is less likely to), and to help prevent fire. A tow truck driver in Yucca Valley recently had to call 911 because the car he was towing had caught fire.

AMR, first on scene.

Getting ready to clear the scene. BE (brush engine) 461 is already headed back to the station.
