MFD, MVAC Respond to Accident
On Sunday May 21, 2006 at 3:45 p.m., a Nassau County Police Ambulance was responding to an assignment in Mineola when it was involved in a collision with a mini-van. The vehicles were traveling Eastbound on Jericho Turnpike at the intersection with Marcellus Road and the initial collision sent the two vehicles skidding out of control. The Ambulance went on to collide with an electrical pole. The vehicle hit with such force that the pole snapped and the Ambulance continued forward breaking through the exterior wall of the Cornerstone Restaurant. The mini-van careened across the intersection and crashed into another section of the Cornerstone Restaurant. Despite the trauma of the event, the driver of the Police Ambulance immediately broadcasted the location of the accident and requested assistance over the police radio. He advised that there were multiple injuries and several people were trapped.
