Early Sunday morning (1/18/15) after Aetna responded to an MVC on Red Mill Road and a box alarm in Kimberton, units were alerted to a MVC with entrapment on Paper Mill Road.  7-4 arrived on scene shortly after dispatch, confirmed entrapment, and began extrication.  7-4, Rescue 8, and 9-5 crews completed the extrication in just over 20 minutes.  Trooper 4 transported one patient to Christiana hospital and A19, NCCEMS, and DSP were all on scene.


After the early morning entrapment, at 0752 hours Aetna was alerted to an MVC with rollover in the 400 block of West Chestnut Hill Road.  Units responded under icy conditions to find the vehicle on its side with one trapped and a compromised electrical pole.  Crews from 9-5 and Rescue 8 had to remove the door and windshield to remove the driver that was transported to Christiania Hospital.
