Joaquin VFD assists Tenaha VFD at rollover car wreck Sunday morning

On Sunday December 20th at around 10 am the Tenaha fire department was dispatched to a one car accident on US Hwy 84 East approximately 1 mile outside of the city limits.
 
A black Late model Dodge Durango was traveling East on 84 when it left the roadway and rolled over into the West bound ditch. 
 
There were 3 occupants of the vehicle. The driver was pinned inside the vehicle so the Joaquin Fire Department was requested in case the Jaws of Life were needed.  The driver was extracted without the use of the Jaws. One passenger was in shock with no visible injuries.
 
The driver and one passenger were transported by EMS to ETMC Carthage. The second passenger was not injured and was allowed to leave on her own. 
 
The Tenaha Fire Department would like to thank the Joaquin Fire Department for their assistance.
