Concord, FL---MVA turns into vehicle fire.
Tuesday, 6-10-03, two vehicles collided at the intersection of Concord and Fairbanks Ferry Roads. A white Ford F-150 was headed north on Concord RD when it ran the stop sign/caution light at the intersection, while travelling approximately 70 mph. The truck hit a dip in the road (in the middle of the intersection), then lost control and slammed into a tan Mitsubishi Galant that was sitting at the stop sign on the opposite side of the interection. The right front of the truck hit the left front of the car, causing both of the vehicles to spin around.
The truck ended up facing south on the left shoulder of the road. The driver of the truck was ejected and came to rest, unconcious, at the side of the road. The truck then burst into flames. The car came to rest facing north in the ditch of the right side of the road.
The gentlemen that was driving the truck had moderate head trauma and fled the scene when he came to, just seconds before the SO arrived on scene. The lady that was driving the car was removed by bystanders after complaining of severe arm pain from her arm being pinned in the car. The lady was transported Code 3 to a local hospital.
For some reason (as usual) the SO paged out Havana VFD long before they paged Concord VFD. I estimate that it was around 15 minutes before the SO paged Concord VFD. Concord VFD arrived on scene to find that Havana VFD had the truck put out and had loaded the PT onto a stretcher. Concord VFD's station is located less than 1/4 mile from the scene of the MVA. Curious...
