Last evening around 2145 hours, FDNY Ladder 129 was
responding first due to a dwelling fire. While responding, they were involved
in a violent crash on Northern Blvd with another vehicle (reported to be a
garbage truck) in an intersection. Several members were trapped and had to be
extricated. Members received a range of yellow and green
injuries-from serious injured (fractures) to not so serious.
confirmed that the Officer and Chauffeur (driver) of the apparatus were wearing
their seat belts and the wearing of those seat belts, by all indications (see
photos of the crash on our home page) probably saved their lives-as they were
the most seriously injured.
We will post more details later on our home page-there are
some photos on the page now.
Take Care-BE CAREFUL.
