On Sunday morning Prescott Fire Department was called to rescue a woman in her 70’s that had driven off the side of the road along Old Senator Road. The woman had gone off the roadway and nearly rolled down a 100-foot high angle embankment to the drainage below. Fortunately for the driver, the undercarriage of the car caught on a concrete culvert but still remained precariously balanced. A resident of the neighborhood secured his Jeep to the car to help keep it in place while awaiting the arrival of firefighters.
The first arriving fire engine was able to soundly secure the car to nearby trees using their engine’s technical rescue equipment and Rescue 42 components, which are materials specifically intended for vehicle stabilization.
