Rescue Runs Double Fatal MVA on Union Street

At 0517 hours on October 14th, MFD was dispatched to a two car MVA on Union Street in the area of Montgomery Elementary School. Car 3 (Hank) and R-222 arrived quickly to find two cars, a van and sedan, involved in a head-on accident. Initial assessment found the driver of the van had minor injuries, but unfortunately both occupants of the sedan had passed away prior to arrival of MFD and EMS units. MFD treated the van driver and then awaited the county ME, before extricating the occupants of the sedan. MFD operated for several hours at this scene, which in turn delayed Montgomery Elementary School for two hours. MFD was assisted on scene by Maybrook FD, Town Police, Village Police, and the State Police as well as Mobile Life Support Services and the OC ME.
