Rescuers vexed by flipped armored truck
by UPI

TORONTO -- Toronto firefighters faced an unprecedented rescue when they took an hour to extricate three men from an overturned armored truck, a spokesman said.

Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Cam Woolley said the Brinks armored truck was apparently traveling too fast Sunday afternoon when it left a highway exit ramp and flipped repeatedly down a grassy embankment near the airport.

Toronto Fire Capt. Jamie Franks told the Toronto Sun the majority of firefighters anywhere have never tried to break into an armored vehicle.

"As quick as they figure new ways to put (vehicles) together, we need to figure how to take them apart," Franks said.

After almost an hour, the two men in the cash-loaded rear compartment were pulled out, and 10 minutes later, firefighters managed to get through the 2-inch windshield to rescue the driver, the report said.

All three men were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, an ambulance supervisor told the Sun.

The cash cargo was transferred to another Brinks vehicle and was all accounted for, the company said.
