E-470 On Ramp MVA with Extrication

Just after 6:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, Local members responded to a semi accident with entrapment on the ramp from northbound I-25 to northbound E-470. When members arrived, they found a semi on its roof with the driver pinned inside. The truck was secured with stabilization struts to prevent it from moving while cutting and spreading tools were used to access the interior. Members entered the crushed cab with the injured driver and carefully worked in a confined space to free them. After working diligently for 40 minutes, the extrication was completed, and the driver was transported to the hospital in serious condition. Colorado State Patrol is handling the accident investigation.
