At approximately 1000hrs Rescue 2, Ambulance 2-9 and CLS-8 dispatched to mile 193N on I-81 for the two car MVA with injuries.  While responding Chief 2A was advised that SAPD on-scene reporting two patients, one confirmed entrapped.  The Chief requested Rescue 4, 4-9 and CLS-2 to the scene.  Crews arrived to find two vehicles on the shoulder, one with server rear end damage and the other overturned with a patient pinned underneath.  Crews freed the patient from under the vehicle and assisted with removing the other patient from the car.  Both patients were transported to the hospital.  Extrication was complete within ten minutes and the interstate remained closed for some time.
