Crews from the Fort Worth (Texas) Fire Department and Medstar Mobile Healthcare attend to a woman who was complaining of neck and back pain after being struck by a vehicle after it crashed into a building in Fort Worth. The driver lost control of the vehicle before slamming into the building. Fort Worth Fire crews ensured the scene was safe and the building and vehicle were stabilized before patient extrication occurred. The patient was safely immobilized and transported by MedStar Mobile Healthcare to John Peter Smith hospital in Fort Worth, where she was treated for major injuries. No other people were in the room of impact at the time of the crash. A second patient in another room was struck by debris and treated for minor injuries.
