The crew from Engine 618 began securing the vehicles and started extrication, as well as assisting with patient care. Squad 615 arrived on the scene and, along with TowerLadder 611, assisted in completing the extrication. The patients were transported to the hospital and Sterling Fire units began cleaning up and returning to service.
