Colleton County Fire-Rescue


Stations 1 and 27 responded to a two vehicle MVC on I-95 at the 50 mile marker southbound at 1815 Saturday evening 2-January. A southbound pick-up truck towing a camper suffered a blowout causing the driver to lose control and strike a another southbound car. Both vehicles went into the median resulting in the camper rolling on top of the small car that became pinned between the cable barrier and the camper. The pick-up truck was jack knifed. All patients were able to self extricate before the arrival of Fire-Rescue units. All patients were wearing seatbelts and received only minor injuries. Medic 27 examined the three people, but they did not require transportation to the hospital. Southbound traffic was slowed to one lane for about two hours until wrecker crews could remove the vehicles.

Engine 1, Medic 27, Rescue 1, Battalion 1 and Truck 12 responded. Battalion Chief Dan Barb served as Incident Commander.
