California AA Accident Attorneys

Firefighters were forced to use the Jaws of Life to rescue a man trapped inside his car after a three-vehicle accident Monday in Palo Alto.

According to Palo Alto Fire Department Battalion Chief Chris Woodard, the crash took place at the intersection of Hanover Street and Page Mill Road at around noon. Firefighters were first alerted to the accident by witnesses on the scene who ran to nearby fire station for help.

The crash trapped one of the drivers, a man believed to be in his 60s, inside his green sedan. Much of the driver’s side of the vehicle was collapsed in on itself and there was little that reminded onlookers of a door remaining.

Firefighters were forced to call on the Jaws of Life to cut the man from his broken car, and after a 20 minute struggle, he was pulled to safety.

The older man suffered significant injuries in the crash, and was quickly transported to Stanford Hospital as soon as he was freed from the wreckage. His identity has yet to be released.

None of the others involved in the crash were hurt, though a responding police officer from the Palo Alto PD was sent to the hospital after complaining of glass in his eye. None of the firefighters who responded to the accident were hurt.

At this time there is no word on what may have caused the accident. Police closed down the intersection for multiple hours as the wreckage was cleared from the scene and investigators interviewed witnesses and gathered evidence to piece together what may have happened.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a serious accident such as this and have suffered expensive damages, there are legal options available to help you recover compensation.
