Story by Ex-Captain Steve Grogan; Photos by Firefighter Brian Grogan
On Saturday, July 3, 2010, at about
5:30 PM, the Lynbrook Fire Department was called out for a reported
car into a pool on Davison Avenue. The first arriving firefighter
and police officer on the scene found a brand new Honda Accord
sitting in the demolished and now emptied four feet above-ground
pool in the backyard of the house on Davison Avenue. They also
found an 82 year old male still behind the wheel of the vehicle.
The firefighter and police officer helped the man out of his car.
Allegedly, the driver, who lives in a house on Central Avenue
directly behind the Davison Avenue home, first did damage to his
neighbor's house across the street from his own before driving up
his driveway, through his own garage, then through the backyard
fence and shrubs, and into the rear neighbor's pool. Although the
driver was not injured the Emergency Medical Company responded to
the scene and transported the driver to the hospital for
observation. The department's Extrication Team was given a Signal
