UPDATE: Vehicle Hits STA Bus In Northwest Spokane; Careens Into On Coming Traffic
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE FIRE DEPT: A three vehicle collision involving an STA bus brought morning traffic to a
standstill in the southbound lanes of Indian Trail Road as SFD companies treated
three patients, one of them with serious injuries.
Engines 16 and 17 and the
North Battalion Chief were all returning from a cardiac arrest incident in a
nearby neighborhood just as the collision occurred; so their response time was
only seconds after the call was dispatched. Due to an occupant being trapped
from the collision, the incident was upgraded to an extrication response which
added two additional Ladders and Heavy Rescue to safely manage the scene.
the injured were readily removed by firefighters from a mangled sedan, though
one remained trapped, requiring rescuers to skillfully disentangle them from the
wreckage with prying tools.
All of the occupants on the STA bus were
interviewed, however were not injured. The serious and moderately injured,
described as two adolescents and one adult male, were transported with Fire
Department Paramedics to area hospitals. The incident remains under
investigation by Spokane Police Department.
