At 5:56 am on Tuesday morning, January 10, 2017, crews were dispatched to a report of a two-car motor vehicle collision with entrapment at the intersection of 87th Avenue SE and 180th Street SE.
When Battalion 71 arrived on scene they found 12 to 15 cars off the roadway between 8700 block of 180th Street SE and Broadway Ave due to the severely icy road conditions.
Battalion 71 quickly started triaging patients as additional crews arrived on scene.
One vehicle was found to be involved in a single car high speed collision. Medic 71 transported one patient code to Providence in Everett.
No other injuries were reported.
The road was closed for a few hours to thru traffic from the 8300 block of 180th Street SE to Broadway due to the icy conditions.
