Ventura County Sheriff SAR Team member killed, two injured in accident #CALODD

We regret to pass on that a member of the Ventura County Search-and-Rescue Team was killed in the Line Of Duty and two others were critically injured in a crash

The multi-vehicle accident involved a total of 10 patients (including an LA County Firefighter) on the 5 Freeway near Pyramid Lake during a heavy rainstorm around 0730 this morning.

A total of 3 rescue team members were involved in the collision. One of them was pronounced dead, another is in critical condition and a third suffered minor injuries. 7 other people were involved in the wreck as well.

One of the rescue teams were on their way to a training exercise when they came upon the initial traffic crash at Vista Del Lago-in Los Angeles County. They stopped to help and while there, a vehicle plowed into the scene.

The identity of the deceased search-and-rescue team member was not immediately released.

Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
