Espana St. Vehicle into House
Posted On: Sep 09, 2020

On Tuesday Sept. 8, 2020 at 5:35 p.m., Local members responded to a MVA into a house call on S. Espana St. in Unincorporated Arapahoe County. When members arrived on scene, they found a car had gone across a stretch of grass, through a fence and crashed into the backside of a home. The homeowner was home at the time, but was not injured. The driver inside the car was trapped from the impact. Crews extricated the person out of the car and began medical treatment as well assessing and stabilizing the structure. Members transported the driver emergent to the hospital. The wet and snowy weather at the time did not allow a tow truck to make its way across the grass and into the backyard to get the car out, so members built a picket system anchor and used a grip hoist to move the car out of the home. They also used a long cable extension attached to the car to pull the vehicle across the grass and onto the tow truck. A board up company covered the damage to protect the inside of the house from the snowy weather. The Arapahoe County Building Inspector came to the scene to assess the structure as well.
