BHFD was dispatched to Interstate 684 on Friday Afternoon for a Motor Vehicle Accident with injuries. Upon the arrival of Car 2033, and Katonah FD's Engine 115 (the incident was originally in the KFD District) they found a car carrier had struck a DOT work truck, that was protecting a DOT mowing crew. BHFD and KFD companies created a safe operating area and secured the car carries for removal of the vehicles being transported.
Katonah - Bedford Hills VAC transported one party BLS to Northern Westchester.
Please, take the time to review the “Move Over Law” which we have in New York State:
“Drivers MUST use due care when approaching an emergency vehicle or hazard vehicle including police vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, construction and maintenance vehicles and tow trucks. The Move Over Law applies to both sides of the roadway, not just the shoulder on the right.”
