SUV Rolls Down Calif. Embankment

Redlands and Loma Linda firefighters responded with the California Highway Patrol to Interstate 10 at Mt. View Ave for a single SUV rollover off of the freeway on Dec. 26.

The SUV left the freeway and came to rest 50 feet below. One of the challenges that firefighters faced was that the SUV rolled into a series of large trees.  

Firefighters had cut a pathway through the trees to gain access to the heavlily damaged vehicle.  

Once access was obtained, firefighters utilized hydraulic and electric powered tools to remove the two critically injured victims.

Units that responded: BC706, T261, ME264, ME263 & ME252
