Just after midnight March 30, tones opened up at Company 28 for an MVC with Entrapment in Gambrills. Engine 51 (Waugh Chapel), Prince George’s County Engine 839 (Bowie), Truck 28 (Odenton), Squad 7 (Arundel), Medic Units 5 & 28 & Battalion Chief 4 responded on the incident. Medic 28 arrived to find one vehicle wedged under the trailer portion of a tractor trailer, with a victim heavily entrapped and asked for Aviation transport from the Maryland State Police. Engine 51 & Squad 7 arrived and began working on the passenger side of the car with Battalion Chief 4 in command. Truck 28 arrived and began working on the driver side of the vehicle, under the trailer. Both crews worked together to help free the victim which took about 20 minutes. The driver and lone occupant was extricated and flown to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for treatment of severe and possibly life threatening injuries. Crews remained on the scene for about 1 hour.
