The Royal Oak Fire Department responded to multiple vehicle accidents Saturday, Nov. 4.
Firefighters from Station 2 responded to an injury accident with reports of occupants trapped on southbound Coolidge. The responding units found a heavily damaged vehicle that had struck a tree with the passenger trapped inside.
Firefighters used the 'jaws of life' to remove the door and free the victim. Both the driver and passenger were transported to William Beaumont Hospital with minor injuries only. The accident caused southbound Coolidge to be shut down for about an hour.
