Minor injuries from near head on collision

This morning has been busy for Troutman Fire & Rescue with an assist on a entrapment on Shinnville Rd.  As units arrived on scene, there was another accident in Troutman, that was involving injuries, so the heavy duty crash truck turned around and headed toward this accident.  While enroute to this accident, another accident reported to be head-on with entrapment occurred up the road, and personnel from Shepherds fire were on the scene and advised they could handle this accident.  I stayed until the EMS arrived, and then left for the 3rd accident.
