Training for any possible situation is key for firefighters and emergency responders. Situations involving cars flipped upside down and on top of each other rarely happen in our area, but are possible.
"We're looking at something like on I-79 or other areas where someone can get into the 50, 60, 70MPH zones," said Captain Cindy Murphy. "You have to be a little more concerned because they can go air born and end up in configurations like these."
Clarksburg firefighters spent hours training Monday afternoon with extendable jacks, known as Rescue 42's, to help them stabilize the cars and come up with different ways to safely remove a person potentially tapped inside. But in real life, they won't have hours.
