Scene Photos, Mechanism of Injury, Ouch

I realized it had been some time since I posted some good flight nurse photos. This set was from an accident this past summer.

The story we got was that a car was slowing down to pass with 2 vehicles trailing. As he made a left turn, the last vehicle decided to attempt to pass both cars in front, t-boning the driver’s side of the car.

Happy to report that everyone made a recovery, but the driver of the car had some scary moments trapped with the truck sitting UP OVER the hood and into the driver’s side. My admiration for the skill of the fire fighters just keeps growing.

Ouch, huh?
Can you guess the driver’s injuries based on this photo?
