MVC Rollover on Route 57
05-13-2013 // 1720 hours // -
The volunteers of Moyers Corners were alerted to a possible three vehicle collision with two vehicles rolled over near the intersection of Oswego Road and Pinehollow Drive. Moyers Corners Car-2 [Crispin] arrived and confirmed one occupant was trapped and that heavy extrication was required. At the time the occupant appeared to have serious traumatic injuries, and with an expected prolonged extrication time a helicopter was placed on standby.
Rescue-4 [Capt Zeppetello] arrived first and began shoring the vehicle and preparing for extrication while Engine-22 [Capt Hoosock] arrived and took safety and hazards. As extrication was being completed Engine-11 [Capt Klem] and Rescue-3 [Lt. Montague] arrived and assisted with extrication and EMS operations. The patient was extricated within 20 minutes of arrival, but the Air-1 helicopter was already on scene. NOVA and the Air-1 flight crew conducted a quick assessment of the patient and determined they could be transported by ground.
All Moyers Corners units were in service within 35 minutes of dispatch time.
