Around 12:30 in the afternoon on Saturday June 16th, Golden's Bridge Firefighters were alerted to a car accident up the road from the firehouse. Car 2141 immediately went to investigate the report and found a car had hit a pole and that there were wires and a pole across the road. Also the wires came down just as a motorcyclist was coming through causing the driver to become involved. Lewisboro EMS and Westchester EMS were requested to the scene to check out the drivers of the vehicle and motorcycle. Engine 140 would be responding minutes after dispatch and reported uto the scene. Engine 140's crew was assigned to do patient assessment and to check for hazards. When Engine 138 signed on responding they were instructed to shut down the road at the firehouse driveway. Rescue 25 was assigned to shut down the road at Todd Rd & Waccabuc Rd. Both patients were checked out at the scene by EMS and both refused medical attention. Golden's Bridge Fire Department remained on scene for about 2 hours, until the car was removed & NYSEG had secured the wires & pole.
