Burbank firefighters had to use the ‘Jaws of Life’ to help free one of the victims who was trapped. Firefighters removed the door and were able to put the patient on a backboard for transportation to a trauma center.

Burbank paramedics required two rescue ambulances, a truck company along with an engine company to handle the three patients that were injured.
