The Danger of Accidents Involving Vehicle Extrication
Vehicle extrication is the process of removing a vehicle from around a motorist following a car accident. This method is used when conventional means are not possible. Delicate care is necessary during the extrication process to minimize the possibility of injuring a victim during extraction. The most recent data available from the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security reveal that in 2007, 2,806 people in Tennessee were extricated from motor vehicle accidents.
