Burbank Fire Fighters needed the ‘Jaws Of Life’ to extricate the driver of this car after he lost control on the northbound I-5 near the Scott Road off ramp and crashed into a large tree. Firefighters were challenged with the rescue as the victim’s leg was trapped against the door post and the base of the tree. California Highway Patrol closed the freeway for a short period during the rescue. Once the paramedics had the victim freed they transported him to Providence Holy Cross trauma center with injuries.
