Langford firefighters use Jaws of Life in rollover crash

Two vehicles collided and one ended up on its side at about 3 p.m. Friday.



Two vehicles collided and one ended up on its side just before 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16  at the intersection of Veterans Memorial Parkway and Peatt Road.

Langford Fire Rescue cut a male driver of a red Mazda pickup truck using the Jaws of Life, before paramedics took him away in a stretcher. The man’s condition is stable and Fire Chief Bob Beckett said he was conscious throughout the extraction.

“They had to do what we call a roof flap, where you take the roof off, allowing exposure to the individual,” Beckett said, “allowing the paramedics to assess and then extracate him from the cab itself.”

The other driver was not taken to hospital. That person was driving a Chevrolet station wagon with SayStop.com logos on it. SayStop.com is an online classified and business directory website.

Beckett said the crash was a T-bone collision and the two vehicles involved only held one person each. Langford firefighters didn’t have far to go to attend the crash as their main fire hall is located at that intersection.
