At 0932 hours on Saturday, Stations 47 and 39 were dispatched for a report of a motor vehicle accident with injuries in the area of Papermill Road and Cooper Road. Engine 473 and IV 395 responded on the call. E473 arrived minutes later to find an older Acura Integra that had gone around the curve, slammed into a tree, and ended up in the woods. Based on the condition of the vehicle, initial thoughts were that there was either an individual trapped inside or that the accident involved a fatality. Much to the surprise of personnel on the scene, the driver was found speaking with police down the street from the car. He was complaining of minor injuries. He was treated by IV 395 and transported to the hospital.
