After an extensive extrication that last just under 90 minutes, fire crews rescue two occupants from a vehicle collision. Both occupants suffered not life threatening injuries and were transported to local hospitals.

Last night just before midnight, multiple units from the Spokane Fire Department (SFD) were dispatched to a vehicle collision at the intersection of N. Division St. and W. Cleveland Ave. Upon arrival, SFD personnel discovered two patients trapped inside a single vehicle.

Due to the precarious and hazardous position of the vehicle in addition to the patient entanglement, additional SFD crews and equipment were dispatched. The extensive extrication lasted just under 90 minutes. Thanks to the diligent work by public safety crews, both of the occupants were transported to local hospitals by American Medical Response (AMR) with not life threatening injuries.

The Spokane Police Department is investigating the cause of the collision.
