Extrication (Ehrhardt Road)

On Saturday, July 16th at 01:19 hours the Pearl River Fire Department responded to an MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) Car vs. Telephone Pole on Ehrardt Road in Pearl River. Orangetown Police confirmed that one individual was pinned and was required to be extricated. Due to the severity of the incident, a rapid extrication was performed. A vertical crush of the door was used to gain access to the nader pin, which allowed us to quickly remove the driver's side door. Paramedics remove the unconscious victim and transported him to Westchester Medical Center.
