Passenger Extricated After T-Bone Crash

It took special power tools before a passenger in a Nissan could be extricated after a T-Bone crash at 5th Ave. W. and West Casino Sunday afternoon. The passenger’s injuries were not life threatening but the safest way to get him out of the vehicle was for crews from Everett Fire Engine 6 and Ladder 1 to use special power tools to take off the doors and door post from the Nissan’s passenger side. Police still are still investigating the circumstances of the crash. Neither driver was hurt. Here are some MyEverettNews.com photos of the man being extricated. Click on photo to enlarge.
