Crash at Watson and 441 Leaves Several Injured

Volunteer firefighters were called out last night for a report of a crash at Watson and 441. As updates came in responding firefighters were advised that there were two cars involved with people trapped in both cars with the possibility of a person ejected.   Arriving on scene shortly after the chief confirmed a serious two car crash with people trapped in both cars and a person ejected. Three ambulances and ALS Units were called for immediately while the first arriving crews from Penfield Tower 371 went to work by setting up the Maverick Hurst Tool and deploying a hose line for fire hazards. The crews from the second and third engine went to work assisting cutting the cars apart and providing EMS with the ambulance crews. There were a total of 5 patients, one critical, 3 serious, and an infant that seemed shaken up. As time elapsed at the scene two more ambulances were called for, a heavy rescue from Fairport was called to the scene to help, one engine from East Rochester was call for a mutual aid fill in to station 1, and additional Fire Police were called for from Fairport to help close down the several streets affected by the crash scene.  The critical victims were removed from the scene immediately as firefighters and ambulance crews worked on gaining access to the trapped victims. Once freed from the cars the victims were transported to local hospitals. Firefighters secured scene hazards and then stood by awaiting the Monroe County Sheriff's Tech Unit to reconstruct the accident scene. In all volunteers were out for over 3 hours at the scene. East Rochester's engine and Fairport's heavy rescue were placed back in service about an hour after they were called.
 
While the car crash was going on volunteers were called out for two more separate calls such as a car fire at Whalen and Five Mile Line and a fumes call on Putting Green.
For the volunteers the afternoon started at 5pm and for most didn't end till 9:30pm.
