Around 3pm, as heavy rains came though the Pawleys Island Area. Midway Fire Rescue units were dispatched to Ocean Highway (Rt. 17) near the Hog Heven restaurant for an accident with injuries. Battalion Chief 81 went responding along with Engine 821 and Medic 825. Central dispatch advised of a single vehicle roll-over with reported occupants still in the vehicle. Battalion 81 requested a heliocopter to be put on stand-by due to the report of occupants still in the vehicle and unknown on injuries. Midway Fire Rescue units arrived on location confirming a single vehicle roll over and four occupants with entrapment. Battalion 81 arrived setting up Ocean Highway command with Engine 821s officer taking operations. Battalion 81 requested an additional Engine and Medic unit to the scene to assist with extraction and patient care. The crews worked to stabilize the vehicle and to start extrication of the patients by removing the doors and a partial roof removal along with pateint care. Once the doors and roof removal was completed, the patients were extricated and taken to the trauma center (Grand Strand).

Battalion 81 cancelled the Helicopter. Once South Carolina Highway Patrol arrived on location and no more hazards were present the scene was handed over and Ocean Highway command was terminated.
