CENTER MORICHES, NY - On Sunday, June 12th at 2:04 P.M., the Center Moriches FD and Suffolk County PD were dispatched to Beachfern Road and Montauk Highway for a reported MVA.
With the accident occurring just one block over from their firehouse, Center Moriches FD Engine 1 (5-4-1), First Responder 80 (5-4-80), and Ambulance 16 (5-4-16) quickly went on the road and arrived on scene seconds later. On arrival units encountered a two-car MVA with heavy damage and debris in the roadway.
The crew from Engine 1 started to secure both vehicles by disconnecting batteries and cleaning up the debris while the crew from Ambulance 16 began evaluating the patients involved in the accident. One person was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation, and one person was treated and released on scene.
Center Moriches FD Second Assistant Chief Brian Deedy (5-4-32) was in command of the incident. All Center Moriches FD units went back in service after 10 minutes of operating on scene.
