Final tally for the weekend; eleven calls. Five between 8 am and 6 pm on Saturday, three between 6 pm Saturday and 6 am Sunday, three between 6 am and 6 pm on Sunday.

Three IV starts, two paramedic intercepts.

One flu shot, courtesy of the fire department.

Only got blood on my clothes once; conveniently on the very last call.

Here are several pictures of the car involved in the accident on Saturday. These pictures are not grisly; no blood or gore. In several of the pictures the semicircular indentation made by the tree can be clearly seen.

Most of the pictures were taken at the garage the wreck was taken to. The roof, cut off during the extrication process, has been thrown back on top of the car for ease of transport. The front and rear bumpers has been placed under the car.

As it turns out, we saw the wreck being taken away by flatbed as we were returning from the hospital... That is the first picture.

The patient was alive when we delivered them to the hospital and, from what I understand, was still alive yesterday. I haven't had an update recently, though. As much as I hate to say it, surviving this accident may not be in the patient's best interest.

The patient was removed from life support last night.

Just curious, how did the car hit? The hood is surprisingly intact. Did the car skid sideways?

It's hard to say what happened. As best as we could figure out, the car hydroplaned into a guardrail and was launched out over the median. The car flew about seventy feet, hit the ground about ten feet in front of the tree, and struck the tree bottom-first. The tree fared much better than the car did, only losing about 2 - 3 sq. ft. of bark.
