By 2nd Assistant Chief John Laakso
January 6, 2018

Early Saturday morning while returning from a call, Rescue 2 (FF Dawley) pulled up on a vehicle that struck a pole on 7th North St and Mayers St. The vehicle struck the pole on the passenger side by the A post entrapping the passenger. Car 4 (D/C Manley) arrived first confirming the entrapment, also requesting National Grid to expedite their response because the pole was broken in half and still live with power. Car 3 (D/C Laakso) arrived and took over operations and started treating the patient with the crew from R2. Engine 2 (Capt. Ambrose) arrived, deploying a handing line and starting stabilizing the vehicle. Rescue 1 (FF Warren) arrived and went to work with the hydraulic tools. The passenger door was first to be removed to gain access to the patient. It was then discovered the dash was badly damaged and was push downed entrapping the passenger. Due to the pole being cracked and where the vehicle struck the pole, there was very limited access to the passenger side of the vehicle. The dash board had to be lifted from the drivers side of the vehicle and part of the dash had to be removed in order to get the patient out. Due to the temperature being below zero, the extended extrication time, and snowy weather conditions, Mattydale Squad 4 was requested into the scene for addition help. The patient was then extricated and transferred over to NOVA ambulance which transported the patient to Upstate Trauma Center. The road was shut down for 24 hours due to the pole needing to be replaced. The accident was being investigated by Onondaga County Sheriffs Office.
