SHIRLEY, NY - On September 15th at about 8:16 P.M., Suffolk Fire Rescue dispatched the Mastic FD to Speedway on the William Floyd Pkwy. northbound for a reported MVA with overturn and fire. Chief Rudy Sunderman (5-12-30) advised County that he was en route, and County advised that they had at least two calls for the accident.

On arrival the chief found a single upright vehicle in the median, with no entrapment. Rescue 5-12-10 and an engine responded in to the scene. On arrival crews went to work securing the vehicle. Smoke was coming from under the hood of the car, so a booster line was stretched to supply water to douse it.

Chief Sunderman asked County to notify the highway department of a downed tree and downed highway sign. He also asked them to advise Brookhaven FD that members were operating partly in their district as well.

EMS personnel checked out the occupants of the vehicle for injuries and transported at least one person to a local hospital. The scene was then turned over to Suffolk Police.
