Given that she may have head neck/spine injuries as a result of the accident, do you really think that would be such a clever thing to do?

There is a reason why they assume the worst so extract the person accordingly.

Since you were there and know the state of the vehicle and how it ended up, perhaps you can explain why this would have been a better course of action?
