Initial reports from Outagamie County Communications Center – 911 indicated that one person was trapped and injured and would need extrication, according to a news release from Combined Locks Public Safety.

Engines equipped with the JAWS of Life from Buchanan and Combined Locks responded to the scene, as well as chiefs from both departments.

When emergency crews arrived, they found the vehicle approximately 150’ north of the intersection in a field.

Due to the nature of the crash, rescue officials requested Eagle III helicopter from County Rescue in Green Bay to start to the scene, because ThedaStar was already on a flight.

The patient was treated on scene and then transported to a Green Bay Area hospital for injuries sustained as a result of the crash.
