A FULL NIGHT OF MVAs

Spread the love

Scene of an injured motorcyclist.

Friday night gave us quite a few EMS runs to attend to Motor Vehicle Accidents spread out across San Salvador.

Along the 10ª. Avenida Norte y la 29ª. Calle Oriente, a young 22yo Isaí Salomón Batres knocked off his bike and luckily with a helmet on only suffered minor injuries and was attended on scene by our EMTs.

A four year old is brought to Childrens Bloom Hospital.

Minutos después sobre la 10ª. Avenida Norte y la 11ª. Calle Oriente una ambulancia del Hospital Nacional de San Francisco Gotera, Morazán, colisionó contra un vehículo de alquiler, dejando al menos cinco personas lesionadas entre ellos ambos conductores.

Only minutes after, an ambulance from the National hospital in San Francisco Gotera Morazan crashed into another car causing at least 5 injured including a 4 year old boy.

Shortly after that along the Troncal del Norte highway near KM marker 10, a male was DOA due to being ran over.

Ambulance vs Taxi was only one of the scenes attended to this Friday night.

An MVA caused by a truck losing control caused many injuries on the main street, “called a Mariona” in front of the local jail Penal la Esperanza recently.

Some of the patients CDS transferred to higher level of care: José Anderson Flores, 5; Ashly Verenice Flores, 2 months old,  Blanca Estala García, de 27 años; José Santos Flores, de 30 y Carlos Antonio Rauda, de 53.

Many of our ambulances were dispatched to attend this Mass Casualty Incident. Many of the those affected were local street sellers that had businesses on the side of the street.
