[ARCHIVED] WFR responds to vehicle rollover

Just after 8:45 pm on 7/14/2018, Watertown Fire Rescue units were called to a vehicle rollover approx 3 miles east of town and 1 mile north. Medic 3 and Rescue 51 were dispatched. On arrival crews found a Cadillac Escalade on its passenger side with one victim trapped in the vehicle. Rescue crews cut the roof open on the SUV to gain access to the victim. The victim was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Prairie Lakes Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Crews were assisted on scene by Codington County Sheriffs, South Dakota Highway Patrol, and a local wrecker company. WFR would like to remind drivers that even well-maintained gravel roads tend to have rough sections and loose gravel that require lower speeds. Most accidents can be prevented simply by slowing down.
