Mount Kisco firefighters intended for Friday night include an inspection dinner. In addition, however, they simultaneously responded to two car wrecks to help involved drivers.
The first incident, on Barker street and near Mount Kisco's eastern border with Bedford, was responded to at 6:29 p.m. according to First Assistant Chief Tom Jackson. It involved a 2-car collision, he said. One person was trapped in an involved vehicle and had to be extricated.
While working on Barker, the fire department received notice of a second car incident, this time on Route 133 in New Castle, just east of Seven Bridges Road. The area in New Castle where the incident occured is part of Mount Kisco's fire district. The crew was split up, according to Jackson.
It is unclear why the driver, who struck two poles and a wall, got into the situation, explained Jackson. The driver was out of the vehicle and received help from passersby, Jackson said, and received medical attention. The extent of the driver's injuries are unclear.
Chappaqua firefighters and New Castle police provided mutual aid in the Route 133 situation, while Bedford police helped with the Barker Street incident.
Because of the planned inspection and dinner, the fire department's apparatus was "fully and ready to respond," Jackson said.
