Once the victim was covered with a heavy blanket for protection, the Rescue Crew made quick work of flapping the roof to remove the driver. Engine 51-2 crew stretched a protective hoseline. The driver was cared for by Good Fellowship EMS providers and transported to a local hospital. WCPD are investigating the cause. All WCFD crews were back in service shortly after 6:00 pm.
