MASTIC, NY - On January 15th at about 3:56 P.M., the Mastic Fire Department and Mastic Ambulance Company were activated for an MVA on Neptune Ave., near Edgewood St. Chief of Department Gene Martucci advised Fire-Com that he was en route, and Fire-Com advised that there were reports of two people trapped.

Engines 5-12-4 and 5-12-1, and Rescue 5-12-10 responded in to the scene. On arrival, the chief advised incoming units that they were going to need to put the tools in operation to pop the passenger side door, as the passenger was still in the SUV. Crews went to work and quickly extricated the passenger. The drivers were both able to self-extricate.

Mutual aid was provided by Mastic Beach Ambulance. Three people were transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries. Two dogs were also in one of the vehicles and removed. It is unknown who they were turned over to at this time.

All FD units were back in service by approximately 4:40 P.M.
