On Friday 25 October, at 17:38 the Sussex EOC alerted the Dagsboro VFD, Frankford VFD EMS, & SCEMS Medic 103 for a MVC with unknown injuries at the intersection of Nine Foot Rd. & Hickory Hill Rd. Asst. Chief McCabe was in the area and made a response via POV, arriving at 17:40 to find 2 vehicles 20 yards off the roadway into a field, with 4 patients, 1 ejected, 1 trapped, & 2 walking wounded. Asst. Chief McCabe established incident command, & advised EOC what he had, requesting 3 BLS units. SCEMS 100 & EMS 16 made a response upon hearing the report and also requested aviation to start to the scene. Engine 732 under to command of Lt. Glenn checked on the air at 17:42 and was advised of the situation. Amb. A-76 was the first EMS unit on the scene and after a quick triage and patient assessment advised they had (2) priority 1 parents, (2) priority 2, with (1) of the priority 1 patient being 5 months pregnant and pinned in the front passenger seat. With the arrival of Engine 732 at 17:47 the crew stabilized the vehicle, deployed its Hurst Combination Tool and began extrication.

Rescue Co. 73 arrived at 17:50 under the command of Chief Engineer Furbush, who was assigned as extrication officer. The crew of Rescue Co. 73 deployed a SawZall, 2nd Combination Tool, O-Cutters, & 32-B Jaws. It was decides to remove both passenger side doors, including the "B" post to remove the patient. By this time both A & B-73 were on location as well as Trooper II, with the priority 1 ejection patient enroute to the hospital and preparing to transport both of the priority 2 patients. As the extraction crew began to remove the front passenger side door it had to be halted due to the patient arm & hand being pinned between the door and the seat, however they were able to displace it enough remove her from the car. With extraction complete, the the 2nd priority 1 patient packaged and enroute to the trauma ctr. via Trooper II, command placed the incident under control 18:06, holding all units. Crews remained on location until 19:00 assisting DSP with traffic control and providing light during their investigation. All units were in the station & ready for service at 19:20.
