07/08/15 94 W, 1 I - + 0 - 3 Dash Cam Video of Cary Fire, Wake EMS

From a reader, here's a dash cam video of a two-car accident, that ably captures the arriving Cary Fire Department and Wake County EMS units. And a bit of on scene action, notably firefighters raising the hood of the car. Titled My Daughter's First Accident is a Big One!, it was posted by YouTube user Speeding Cops North Carolina on June 9, 2015. Looks like likely minor injuries. Impressive video camera quality, as well. Thanks Chad!

Nice blocking!! I love how the truck company diverted all traffic away from the scene by sending them through a parking lot. Kudos to the person with common sense who came up with the idea. Now that’s called situational awareness. This video should be used as a training tool for drivers. Too many times I see apparatus only protected one lane because they were trying to “be considerate” to other motorists by leaving the passable lane open. That’s a fine technique 10 years ago but there are too many distracted or inconsiderate drivers who would barely slow down when passing through the scene. In today’s times you HAVE to protect the scene by blocking AT MINIMUM one lane on both sides of the scene.

Ranger you are exactly right, great job blocking. My dept runs around 30-40 MVC a year and 90 percent are at the intersection in front of our fire station. We have became extremely proficient at setting up at this intersection and we do the same thing. There are 2 convenience stores on each corner as well as a shopping center. We utilize these parking lots almost every time and block the entire side of the highway (4 lane divided highway)

Who was the first person to pull on scene in the pickup POV? Looks like a white shirt with a radio
