5 People Injured In Accident Involving 2 Motorcycles And A Car In Bradley County

Monday, April 14, 2014

Five people were injured in an accident, involving two motorcycles and a car on Sunday in Bradley County.

Bradley County EMS responded to a serious crash on Frontage Road. At 4:30 p.m. four ambulances and a shift commander responded to the 8400 block of Frontage Road. When emergency crews arrived, they encountered multiple trauma patients lying on the ground off the roadway.

Apparently, a collision occurred between two motorcycles and a passenger car. There was one rider on one motorcycle and two riders on the other. They all suffered serious injuries.

After responders made their assessments, they made the determination that they all needed to be transported to a level one trauma center. Air medical was requested to respond. Erlanger Lifeforce responded with two helicopters. They both landed nearby. One adult female patient and one adult male patient were flown to Erlanger Medical Center. Another male was transported by ambulance to Erlanger. The occupants of the car involved were a female and a child. They were both transported locally to Sky Ridge Medical Center with minor injuries.

“These types of accidents that involve multiple trauma patients can be challenging. Our EMS service actually just completed training involving scenarios similar to this accident. All of our emergency personnel have been trained in mass casualty response and triage,” said Stan Clark of Bradley County EMS.
