The injured passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a serious accident at Sunrise Highway and Broadway on  Sunday, Aug. 2nd, 2009, when they had to be cut out of her car by Lynbrook volunteer firefighters. Three others were also injured in the accident.

Lynbrook volunteers, under the leadership of Chief Kevin Bien, responded with their Extrication truck, two ambulances, and Engine Company 1, at about 10:20 PM on August 2nd when a Jeep and a mini-van were involved in the accident at that busy intersection.  The driver from the Jeep and the driver and a child from the mini-van were able to get out of their vehicles but the female passenger in the front seat of the mini-van was trapped behind the crumbled dashboard that pinned her in the front seat.  Lynbrook Medic from the Emergency Medical Company treated the injured while Extrication team firefighters went to work and took off the mini-van’s door and then pried the dashboard away to free the woman and her trapped legs.  She was then put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital with the other three injured passengers.
