A woman involved in a traffic accident was severely injured and required urgent medical treatment. She was taken to hospital by air ambulance earlier this month.
The driver was involved in an accident with a large 18 wheeler truck. Eye witnesses which saw the accident unfold said that the lady looked like she had almost had one leg amputated as a result of the crash. A source has recently obtained new information about the accident.
The Nassau police department issued a report which said the woman was thought to be in a critical position. The emergency services were quick on the scene and had to use the Jaws of Life to cut her out of the car. Once removed from the vehicle the woman could then be airlifted to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
The reporter has learned that the accident is likely to be the result of driver error. State troopers say that the driver was at fault as she never tried to stop before slamming into the back of the trailer. The name of the woman driver has not been released as they want to find out more about her condition and notify the family.
The driver of the truck did not receive any injuries. The woman was pinned inside her vehicle which made it very difficult to rescue her. She actually needed to be cut out of the car by using the Jaws of Life. This delayed the speed at which medical treatment could be administered.
Eye witnesses said that they heard a very loud noise and when they looked round they saw the car had hid the back of the trailer.
The woman was taken to a Suffolk hospital by ambulance. When doctors there realized the extent of her injuries she was then transferred by air to Pitt Memorial Hospital. The local police department is still investigating the cause of the accident and said that they are still not sure of the cause. The investigation is currently ongoing and it could take some time before anyone knows what really happened.
