Upon arrival, crews reported three patients trapped. Command immediately requested multiple helicopters and at least four ambulances.

Trooper 4 (Delaware State Police Aviation) transported at least one patient to the trauma center at Christina Hospital in Stanton, Delaware.

Trooper 1 and Trooper 6  (Maryland State Police Aviation) left the scene at around the same time as Trooper 4. It’s unknown if either of those helicopters transported any patients.
