Motor Vehicle Accident with Car Fire Creates Major Traffic Jam on Lakeville Road During Rush-Hour


On Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 at 5:07PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 4, 5 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to in front of 318 Lakeville Road in Lake Success for a reported motor vehicle accident with fire. Chief Farrone (8705) and Deputy Chiefs Kiess (8701) and Candan (8704) all responded to the call simultaneously and were advised of a reported motor vehicle accident with possible fire. 

Due to the accident, traffic was at a stand-still on Lakeville Road, which made it very difficult for responding apparatus to arrive at the scene. Despite the heavy congestion, Deputy Chief Candan arrived on scene and confirmed a minor accident with a working vehicle fire. Squad 8759 was the first piece of apparatus to arrive, followed by Engine 8740. Both units stretched 1” ¾ hoselines and extinguished the fire. Ambulances 8767 and 8769 and Ladder 8743 were also on the scene. 

Lakeville Road was shutdown in both directions for about thirty minutes by the Lake Success Police Department while firefighters extinguished the fully-involved vehicle. There were no reported injuries from the passengers of either vehicle involved in the accident and all units were released from the scene within thirty minutes by Chief of Department Farrone.

Chief Farrone was the first unit to arrive on the scene and confirmed a two-car accident directly under the overpass for Lakeville Road with persons trapped and injured in both vehicles and one vehicle vertical on its side.  Squad 8759 and Engine 8758 arrived on the scene a minute later and immediately stabilized the vehicle which was on its side and began to extricate the person trapped inside the vehicle.  The medics of M-LFD Ambulance 8767 stabilized and packaged the patient for removal from the vehicle and transported them to a local area hospital.

Even though the incident was located a half mile into Nassau County, New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and NYPD Emergency Service Units were also dispatched to the incident in the event the accident was actually within the New York City border.  While M-LFD units worked on the overturned vehicle, FDNY units used their extrication equipment to remove two trapped occupants of the second vehicle, who were then transported by NCPD Ambulances to local area hospitals.

Deputy Chief Garrigan (8703) was the first unit to respond to the call and was advised by the dispatcher of a general automatic alarm signal received through the alarm company.  Deputy Chief Garrigan arrived on the scene four minutes later and reported that he had “smoke showing from the attic vents” and immediately requested that the incident be upgraded to a structure fire, which added Company #3 to the original assignment.
