Entrapment

From reports, the GMC Yukon did not slow at the intersection and hit a pickup truck.  The SUV continued through a chain link fence into a number of stacked tiles.  The tiles are a composite tile, and were on top of the vehicle.  The door had had to be removed to get the patient out of the vehicle.
