Three Bridges Fire Company (33) and Whitehouse Rescue Squad (22) were dispatched to Rt 202 and Pleasant Run Road for the overturned car. While units were responding BLS on scene requested a medevac helicopter however, they declined due to the heavy snow that was coming down at the time. Due to the snow units responses were slightly delayed. The vehicle was on its side and the driver was trapped inside with injuries. 33 Fire and 22 Rescue began stabilizing the car to prepare for the extrication. The windshield and sunroof were taken out to remove the patient from the vehicle. Squad 32 went in service and by the time crews arrived units on scene were about to remove the patient. The crew from Squad 32 stood by and assisted with whatever was needed on scene since extrication was already completed. Short time after all 32 fire units were cleared while 33 Fire remained on scene until the tow truck arrived to remove the vehicle. Readington Fire Units were cleared by the 16:40 hour mark.
