M-LFD & FDNY Respond to Motor Vehicle Accident with Entrapment on NSP

On Tuesday, November 18th, 2014 at 7:28PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 3, 5 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to the eastbound Northern State Parkway at Lakeville Road for a reported motor vehicle accident with overturn and entrapment.  Chief of Department Farrone (8705), Squad 8759 and Engine 8758 all responded at the same time and were advised of multiple calls being received.

Chief Farrone was the first unit to arrive on the scene and confirmed a two-car accident directly under the overpass for Lakeville Road with persons trapped and injured in both vehicles and one vehicle vertical on its side.  Squad 8759 and Engine 8758 arrived on the scene a minute later and immediately stabilized the vehicle which was on its side and began to extricate the person trapped inside the vehicle.  The medics of M-LFD Ambulance 8767 stabilized and packaged the patient for removal from the vehicle and transported them to a local area hospital.

Even though the incident was located a half mile into Nassau County, New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and NYPD Emergency Service Units were also dispatched to the incident in the event the accident was actually within the New York City border.  While M-LFD units worked on the overturned vehicle, FDNY units used their extrication equipment to remove two trapped occupants of the second vehicle, who were then transported by NCPD Ambulances to local area hospitals.
