Carbon County EMTs pry female driver from crushed SUV
Price emergency medical personnel use the jaws of life to extricate a female motorist from her Hyundai SUV Tuesday evening after she was broadsided by a white Nissan Pathfinder.
The late model Pathfinder collided with the driver's side door of the east bound Hyundai Santa Fe when it attempted to turn left toward the U.S. Highway 6 on-ramp.
According to police on scene, the collision, which occurred around 5:15 p.m. sealed the driver's side door of the Hyundai causing EMTs and Price Fire officials to work quickly in order free the driver.
While her injuries are not known at this time, it was clear she was in pain. Carbon County EMTs placed her in a neck brace before loading her onto a backboard and transferring her to Castleview Hospital for further medical attention.
