    As Weruj1 says, the pedestrian survived (though he was initially pronounced dead at the scene).

    More info and another download site:

    It is real. I have had this clip for almost a year now too. I use it in my EMT classes when I do my video day. I have lots of similar ones.

    Mine has the story attatched to it. The guy was critical for a few days but he made a few recovery motnhs later.

    We had a similar accident, but just imagine a telephone pole down across the roadway and three cars instead of two, two of them with entrapment.

    Came in when the paid crew was on duty. That was the first and only time control has ever come across and gone "Engine 1, expedite your response."

    The car on the victim wasn't occupied(Guy crawled out, amazingly), and we did the 'redneck' way of lifting the car off the patient. The medics felt he was still viable, but he wasn't breathing so it was sort of a 'git'r'done' type deal...Nothing I'm proud of or comfortable with, though. But he did live to see his family again, so that provided us with some consolation...
