At approximately 0052hrs. 4-9 was dispatched to assist station 5 for a rollover with entrapment.  Chief 5A arrived on-scene and confirmed entrapment.  4-9 arrived on-scene to find access made to the patient by the Engine 5 crew.  The vehicle had severe damage throughout the vehicle with 12+ inch intrusion to the front driver and passenger compartment.  The vehicle went off the roadway and rolled through a creek before coming to rest, on it's roof, in another roadway.  The Engine 5 crew and 4-9 crew immobilized the patient and removed the patient from the vehicle.  Once the patient was secured in 4-9, 4-9 transported to the hospital with CLS-6 paramedic.  All units cleared within one hour.
