After a logging truck and a pick-up collided on a road near the Sierra Conservation Center in Jamestown, an inmate firefighting crew and their supervising CDCR Captain were the first on the scene. They valiantly but ultimately unsuccessfully attempted to save the life of one of the victims.
The officer and inmates extricated a teenage girl from the mangled pick-up and provided first aid while medics and an ambulance raced to the scene.
The inmate fire fighter rode with the victim in the ambulance while continuing CPR and other efforts to revive the victim who did not survive.
