Incident - RTC - Scene Safety

Date: 04/02/2018
Time: 14:31
Location: Outside The Royal Bath and West Showground, Prestleigh, Shepton Mallet
Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

2 fire appliances from Shepton Mallet, together with the Rescue Tender from Glastonbury, were mobilised following a request from Ambulance for our attendance to initial reports of a 2 vehicle RTC, car vs a lorry, where the car had left the carriageway and come to rest in a field.

However, on arrival of our initial crew they confirmed this was in fact a single vehicle RTC, involving a car, with a male casualty still within the vehicle, medically not physically trapped.

Crews assisted Ambulance paramedics with the casualty, before making the vehicle and scene safe. Duty of care was then left with Ambulance and the Police.
