Jacksonville Units Respond to Head-On Collision Involving Members (Local Box 47-8)

June 27th, 2008

At approximately 0815 hours Friday morning, Station 47 was alerted for a report of a motor vehicle accident with unknown injuries and a vehicle smoking. Engine 473 responded on the initial call. While still en-route, additional information advised that there were now reports of subjects injured which added Medic 475 to the incident. Units arrived minutes later to find two vehicles that had collided at Manor Road and Green Glade Road. One of the cars involved was occupied by two long-time members of the fire company. Crews worked to close the road, assess the patients, and mitigate the spilled fuel hazards. The smoke initially reported was dust from the airbags. Luckily, no serious injuries were suffered by anyone involved. A single patient was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Jacksonville Units: E473, M475, SU476
