From the first crew to arrive on the scene to the last victim to be transported to a hospital, last week's accident looked like anything but controlled.
Neal White with Metro Care in Abilene said when he first arrived on the scene he did not know how many victims were involved, so he called for back up from Callahan County.
Greg Goettsch with the Abilene Fire Department says a system they and all other first responders use ensures that any other agency from anywhere in the area could have come to the scene and plugged themselves into the effort that day.
Multiple victims were being treated, while others were still being rescued from the SUV, and others were transporting equipment while another crew was getting a system ready to get the victims out of the creek safely.
But White says what we saw on the scene was just the surface of all the other things happening behind the scene
There were other first responders from other agencies who were there helping out, who just happened to be passing by and knew the incident command concept.
