*Brickford County Emergency Dispatch* "(Bee-dee-boop-beep-bop) Engine 1, 1-Alpha-104, respond to a vehicle spinout, approximately 3600 Viewcrest Lane, timeout 16:37." Today, at 4:37 PM, an 911 call came in from a man who had spun out on a lightly traveled road, and slammed into a snowbank. At 4:41 the sheriff unit arrived, and found a pickup truck off the road embanked in snow. The deputy started to try and force the driver's door open, which was frozen shut. At 4:46 BFRD Engine 1 arrived and the crew got to work. The FFs had a hose on standby, due to the extremely hot tires, from a failed attempt to free himself before calling 911. The other FF was digging out the car, so that it could drive away by itself. At 4:53, the car was freed, and the driver was released without injuries. He drove away. At 4:59, the scene was cleared.
My mom is a singer, and I just got back from one of her concerts when I made this. Ironically, she was stuck, trying to get home. She was burning rubber, and a nearby police officer directing traffic helped her. He finally ended up calling another unit, and she was pushed up the hill so the could get on the street.
Oh, and by the way, I stood outside, without gloves, in 21 degree weather, when it felt like 13, so you'd better like this, because I nearly froze to death.
