Dix Hills volunteer firefighters used multiple heavy rescue tools to extricate the woman who was transported by the Dix Hills Rescue Squad to Huntington Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The driver and passengers in the Accord were taken to Huntington Hospital by Dix Hills Rescue and treated for minor injuries. About 25 Dix Hills firefighters and rescue personnel were dispatched with two heavy rescue trucks, two ambulances, and a paramedic responder, under the direction of Chief Richard Granahan.
