Vails Gate NY - At approximately 3:45 P.M. on January 7th, the Vails Gate FD, along with New Windsor EMS/ALS and New Windsor Police, were dispatched to a reported motor vehicle accident with rollover on Windsor Highway (Route 32).
VGFD Car-2 (A/C Merritt) called out responding and was advised by Base-5 (NWPD) that police units were on scene confirming the need for extrication. Car-2 arrived, established Command and advised of a two-car MVA with one vehicle on its side.
R480 with Lt. Gayton arrived and their crew went to work using Res-Q-Jacks to stabilize the vehicle and used hydraulic tools to begin extrication. E479 went to work making the second vehicle safe while E481 mitigated the spilled fluids.
New Windsor EMS & paramedics handled patient care and transportation. New Windsor Police had patrols, supervisors and detectives on scene to handle traffic/crowd control, as well as the accident investigation.
The victims were extricated in approximately 15 minutes, with VGFD units taking up shortly thereafter.
