While enrout Cecil County Fire Board reported several calls of a head on collision and one possible rescue (entrapment). Ambulance 13 arrived on scene first, confirming the report and had Rescue 22 turn around and pull up next to the vehicle. Safety 13 ran command and called for additional resources. Rescue 8 and Engine 9 (Aetna New Castle County) along with two helicopters for transport to the hospital were called to the scene. Rescue 22's crew laid out tools and stabilized the car. Once the car was stabilized the crew started removal of the drivers door and windshield. Then Aetna arrived on scene and began cutting the passenger side, so the roof could be removed.
