Local EMS crews say they’ve noticed a disturbing trend. When in an ambulance responding to an emergency, motorist do not yield the right-of-way. This can be a danger not only to the patient by delaying advanced treatment at the hospital, but to the EMTs in the ambulance as well.

These firefighters responding to this horrible accident knew they had little time to treat & transport the patient, & There was no time to get a jack. So they tried the brute force approach. They lifted the car off the pinned cyclist themselves. Sometimes teamwork & a sense of urgency can do the job.
