"Engine 1, Fly Car 1, respond to a reported truck fire on the I-90 just outside of the city lines, CRFD firefighters report a semi cab on fire in the northbound lanes around Mile-Marker 90/4. Time out is 10:45."
On May 26th around 10:30, an officer with the LCMPD Highway Division spotted a semi in the middle of the northbound lanes of I-90, inside the city lines of Rice. The officer, and a passing second officer, found the driver laying badly burned beside his truck, and pulled him away from the scene. Support 47 of Rice was dispatched along with Rice Medic 4-7. When S47 arrived on-scene, he found an out-of-control fire, from which he then called for M/A from the LCMFD. Units were rolled at 10:45, and were on scene by 10:50. At this time, a FF/EMT from Medic 4-7, a MedLink Paramedic from FC1, and the Chaplain off E1, gave the victim his last rights, and sent him, with an escort from FC1, to Brick County Regional Hospital, he died en-route. Units pictured: LCMPD Highway Division Cars x2, CRPD Traffic Unit, LCMFD Engine 1, CRFD Support 47 and Medic 4-7, and MedLink Fly Car 1. .
Here is Tyler Rice, M/A partner, LEGO bud, and my best friend. His units are the the red w/ black and white stripes. I had fun, and can't wait to do more M/A with him.
