MASTIC, NY - On Tuesday, June 20th, just before 6:00 P.M., the Mastic Ambulance Company and Mastic Fire Department were dispatched to Poospatuck Ln. and Sinnecock Ave. for a report of a vehicle crash.
On arrival, emergency personnel found a crash involving some sort of motorized bike. The patient was assessed by EMS members and it was requested that aviation respond for transport of the injured person. Mastic Fire Department was then reactivated for a helicopter landing at the William Floyd High School per procedure. Units responded into the high school and assisted Suffolk Police 7th Precinct officers with securing a landing zone.
The patient was assessed by the Stony Brook Hospital flight medic prior to being loaded into the helicopter for transport. Once the helicopter was enroute to the hospital, EMS and fire units were released from the scene. It was not disclosed what injuries the person received, but Suffolk Police remained at the original scene of the accident for an extended period of time to conduct an accident investigation.
