For immediate release: August 6, 2022 - 8:23am

At 6:26 p.m. on August 5, 2022, the Saskatoon Fire Department received a call for a single vehicle that had rolled over onto its roof on Idylwyld Drive at the Lorne Avenue exit.  One fire engine, one rescue unit and the Battalion Chief responded.  On arrival, the fire crews identified a car on its roof with one driver inside suspended from the seatbelt.  Fire crews stabilized the car to ensure it wouldn't move then prepared equipment to extricate the patient.  Firefighters cut the seatbelt, freeing the driver and gently placed the patient on their stomach.  The patient was able to safely crawl out of the vehicle through the rear driver side window.  Fire crews transferred patient care to the ambulance service.
