Driver extricated from car following Calif. collision

Humboldt Bay Fire personnel used the Jaws of Life to free the woman from the Ford pickup before loading her on a stretcher to be taken to a local hospital

The Times-Standard

EUREKA, Calif. — The Humboldt Bay Fire Department extricated a woman from her Ford pickup truck on Thursday afternoon after a traffic accident at Sixth and I streets left her trapped in the overturned vehicle.

A Eureka Police Department press release said witnesses reported that Tara Dewey of Eureka was traveling northbound on I Street at about 2:15 p.m. when a black Honda Civic driven by Daniel Wheeler of Weott ran a red light and broadsided her truck, causing it to spin and roll over. The truck slid into a parked van before coming to rest on its side.
