The Huntington Manor Fire Department was activated for a motor vehicle accident with a victim trapped on Wyoming Drive near Oregon Drive in Huntington Station, shortly before midnite Friday June 20, 2014. Firefighters arrived to find an Acura SUV with the driver trapped in the wreckage. Under the command of Chief Fred Steenson, Jr., firefighters used the heavy rescue “Jaws of Life” tools to pry open the driver’s side door and remove the male driver. The Acura struck a parked Mercedes-Benz SUV and rolled over before landing on its wheels. About 25 firefighters were on the scene with two heavy rescue trucks and an engine. Firefighters applied an absorbent to the road for a fuel spill resulting from the crash. Chief Steenson was assisted by Chiefs Frank McQuade and Mike DePasquale with the rescue operation. The patient was transported to Huntington Hospital by the Huntington Community First Aid Squad with non-life threatening injuries.
