Delaware paramedic injured at the scene of a crash

     

Monday, February 11, 2013 From The Secret List:


A New Castle County (DE) Paramedic operating at the scene of 2 serious crashes on 2 bridges, 1 each direction, was reportedly injured early this morning when he fell between the two roadways through a small gap. He fell 20 to 30 feet when additional ALS patients were determined on the opposite side from him and he attempted to cross over to assist. His injuries and status are currently unknown but was reported to be conscious at the hospital.


The Paramedic was one of 5 patients, at least 2 of which were ALS, taken from what ended up being 3 incidents at the one location at the same time on Delaware Route 7 by the entrance to the Delaware Park Casino - just after midnight this morning. All patients were taken the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center, which is close to the scene.


The first crash was when a single vehicle crashed into a jersey barrier north bound on Route 7. That vehicle had 3 patients. The second was caused as a good samaritan, who had stopped his van in the south bound 
lanes, was struck by an SUV soon after stopping, trapping the driver of that SUV. The Paramedic fell just after arriving in the beginning of operations at the 2 MVCs.


Fire companies from Mill Creek and Minquas of Newport, along with EMS from Mill Creek, Minquas, Elsmere, Cranston Heights, Aetna of 
Newark and Several New Castle County Paramedic units and Supervisors were operating on the scene.
