Just before noon, Midway Fire Rescue was dispatched to Ocean Highway at the entrance to Debordieu Colony for a motor vehicle accident with reported entrapment. The caller advised that a SUV had flipped multiple times with people trapped inside. Ladder 831, Medic 815 and Rescue 816 responded immediately along with Battalion 83. Battalion 83 with the information, put a medical helicopter on stand-by just in case patients need flown to a local trauma center. Ladder 831 arrived on location, establishing Ocean Highway command advising they had a single vehicle rollover and all occupants out of the vehicle. Command quickly held the box to Ladder 831 and Medic 815 placing all other units in service. A single patient was transported to Georgetown Memorial Hospital for injuries sustained at the accident. The crews were out for about an hour on scene.
