At approximately 1420 hrs on Monday, January 22, 2024, the Jamesport Fire Department responded to a Motor Vehicle Accident with a reported occupant trapped in the vicinity of RG|NY on 6025 Sound Avenue, Jamesport, NY.

The incident involved a single occupant vehicle that had crossed over oncoming traffic, colliding with several trees before coming to a stop against another tree. Despite the severity of the crash, the occupant sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Under the command of Chief of Department Harold “Duffy” Griffiths III, the Jamesport Fire Department deployed Heavy Rescue unit 6-1-4 and its skilled crew promptly extricated the trapped occupant from the vehicle within 10 minutes.

Following the extrication, the vehicle was thoroughly examined for leaks or fire hazards and secured to prevent any further incidents. The sole occupant was evaluated on scene and transported to a local area hospital for medical attention.

The Jamesport Fire Department would like to highlight the importance of seatbelt usage while operating a motor vehicle and the dangers of distractions while driving. This incident serves as a reminder to all to prioritize safety on the roads.

Fortunately, the quick response and efficient actions of the Jamesport Fire Department prevented further harm, and all personnel were cleared from the scene within approximately 25 minutes.
