Orland Fire Protection District Companies were called at 10:10 am hours for a car rolled over in a creek at 15829 Orland Brook Dr, upon arrival companies found a car had jumped a berm, nosed into the ground and flipped over in a creek.

The water was about 1 foot deep and we gained access through the driver’s door.

The driver was sitting on the inside roof in the upside-down vehicle leaning up against the passenger door.

The motorist was removed from the car and transported to the hospital where he is reported in good condition. After the patient was removed, companies observed that the car was leaking fuel and oil into the creek. A level 1 hazmat response was called and companies placed booms across the creek downstream to catch the fuel and oil.
