Allamuchy, NJ - On July 26th, Allamuchy firefighters responded to Route 80 at around 5:45 A.M. for a motor vehicle accident with heavy entrapment. A single car went off the road, striking a tree and coming to rest in the fast lane. Chief 91-60 arrived on scene first with the initial size up, and Heavy Rescue 91-75 immediately went to work. The driver of the vehicle was heavily pinned, but firefighters worked quickly to successfully free him in under 15 minutes. The patient was then transferred to 95 Rescue, and airlifted from Route 80 to a local hospital. NJSP also assisted at the scene with traffic control and highway closure.
