    Exclamation FDNY Engine 283

    Read that 283, the Luverne 'Spirit of Louisiana', was involved in a pretty serious wreck on their way to an all hands fire last night...Everyone alright? 229Lt, Caveman?

    This is the information I received on my pager:

    BROOKLYN NY *MAJOR APPARATUS MVA* FDNY E-283 INVOLVED IN A SERIOUS MVA WITH A CIVILIAN AUTO AT LINDEN BLVD & ROCKAWAY AVE WHILE ENROUTE TO A W/F, CONFIRMED PIN IN THE AUTO, RESCUE/EMS/PD RQST'D, UNK EXTENT OF INJ'S TO CIVILIANS & FF'S ATT EAN100
    *************

    I have not heard anything on injuries and I did not see anything on the news websites.

    FDNY was busy when this happened. I think they had that 4th alarm drugstore fire, along with other miscellaneous calls were going on. I am not sure what call they were enroute to.

    All the people involved walked away, some minor bumps. Car was done in, rig didn't even need touchup paint on the front bumper.

    According to the local (NY City) news sources, two cars collided with one another then they collided with the engine. No one was seriously injured.

    Glad to hear no one was hurt.....By the way, it's a Ferrara, not a Luverne......
