Driver Injured in Tampa Box Truck Crash
On Wednesday, March 13, 2019, a delivery truck and a sedan collided severely damaging the sedan and trapping the driver inside. The crash happened around 5 a.m. at the intersection of East Hillsborough Avenue and North 30th Street in Tampa. Hillsborough Ave. had to be closed for several hours as EMS workers had to cut the driver from the car. He was immediately transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Jaws of Life.
The driver in the accident with the box truck had to be cut out of his vehicle to save his life. Every day, people are freed from their vehicles by firefighters and EMS workers who use specially designed and very powerful tools.
The first of these tools used was called the Jaws of Life, and it was patented in 1961. Today, most of these tools are called hydraulic rescue tools, and just about every county in the nation has one or has access to one.
The tools use liquid hydraulics to provide power to “jaws” that can be brought together or separated with great force. They can also cut through steel, sheet metal and other composites that are used in automobiles.
