Terryville Volunteer Fire Department

Rollover Extricaton Main St At Hillside Ave 12/04/10

A rollover accident on Main St in Terryville sent one woman to the hospital with potentially serious injuries. The impact of the suv she was driving split a utility pole in half leaving the top section of the pole dangling from the high tesion wires it was supporting. Members of the Terryville Volunteer Fire Department and Plymouth Volunteer ambulance responded to the scene. Firefighters quickly stabilized the vehicle which was situated on it's passenger side, and performed a roof peel to access the patient. This allowed the EMS volunteers the space they need to remove the patient and stabilize her on a backboard for transport to the hospital for evaluation and treatment. The road would remain closed for an extended period of time so that the police could perform their investigation and utilty workers could safely replace the badly damaged pole.
