Colleton County Fire-Rescue


Stations 1, 26 and 27 responded to a high speed single vehicle MVA on I-95 at the 63 mile marker southbound, Tuesday morning 2-March at 0918. A southbound Budget box-type truck left the roadway and entered the median striking multiple trees. The truck received heavy damage. The initial callers reported the passenger was trapped in the wreckage, however firefighter-paramedics were able to extricate the man without the use of hydraulic tools. The driver was ambulatory and stable, however the passenger suffered multiple traumatic injuries and was in critical condition. A medical helicopter was not readily available, so the man was transported to Colleton Medical Center where he underwent emergency surgery.  

Engine 26, Medic 26, Medic 27, Rescue 1 and Battalion 1 responded. Captain Scott Feather served as Incident Commander.
