Mutual Aid to Route 66 in Columbia. Two people transported to hospital by LifeStar helicopter. That white thing in the black car is the hood of the white car.




Try to figure out how this happened. The driver and passenger were out of the vehicle before our arrival and even they didn't know how they got up there. This is a scan of a Polaroid.



  
The car with the wheel off hit the other car. No injuries but it could have been worse. It was almost a head-on crash.



  
Drinking and driving and another rollover. The driver just squeezed out of the car prior to our arrival. Good thing there wasn't a passenger. Driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries. Large gas leak.




More drinking and driving. No injuries. Driver was transported to Troop K.



    

 
Mutual aid to Hebron. Drinking and speeding. Four young people on board. One taken to hospital by LifeStar, the other three taken by ambulance. That's the back of the car that hit the tree. Imagine if the car hit the tree head on?



  
Mutual aid to Hebron. Drinking and speeding. Two people on board. One taken to hospital by LifeStar, one taken by ambulance.




Going a bit too fast for the curve. No injuries.



  
Drinking and speeding and bouncing off a tree. One person on board. Transported to hospital. Guess what told us the driver wasn't wearing a seatbelt?



 

    


Drinking and speeding. This time the tree caught the car keeping it from rolling down the hill. One person on board. Transported to hospital. Think about what would have happened if there was a passenger.



  
Don't really know what happened here. Going too fast, maybe? Driver transported to hospital. Thanks to Columbia FD.



  


Route 87. Driver transported to hospital with minor injuries. Wearing seatbelt.



  


Driver transported to hospital with minor injuries. Upon our arrival, the patient was on the ground... wearing handcuffs. Ending a high speed chase.



  


No injuries. That leg was still attached to the patient.
