Connecticut MVA Requires Extrication, Medivac

On Tuesday, December 14, 2004 at 11:11 AM, the Hebron (CT) Volunteer Fire Department responded to a motor vehicle accident involving a dump truck versus car at the intersection of Rt. 85 and Rt. 66.

Upon their arrival, the Connecticut State Police immediatley requested LifeStar. Upon the first arriving fire department units, an additional heavy rescue was requested from Colchester.

There were two patients in the red Monte Carlo, of which one was self-extricated, however the passenger was pinned from the truck and car door. Extrication was complete and the patient removed to LifeStar at 11:55 AM. Marlborough was also requested for transport of the driver of the Monte Carlo, and Columbia provided the ground contact for LifeStar that landed behind the Hebron Fire House, Company 1.

The patient that was extricated suffered a femur fracture, crushed pelvis, and possible internal injuries.

Units remained on scene to assist the State Police in the investigation and await the arrival of the wreckers. The patients status is unknown at this time.

The red Monte Carlo reportedly ran a red light at the intersection, as the dump truck was crossing.
