Just before 8:30 Friday morning, Golden's Bridge Fire Department, along with Lewisboro VAC & Westchester EMS, were dispatched to I684 Southbound in the area of 19.5 for a motor vehicles accident with injuries. Car 2141 & Car 2142 were responding within minutes of dispatch. Car 2142 was first on scene and took command of the incident. Upon arrival of Engine 138 they took up a blocking position to protect the accident scene. The crew went to work assessing patients and securing the vehicles, as well as containing a minor fluid spill from one of the vehicles. Tanker 1 was assigned as an additional blocking position, giving an even bigger protection zone. Both drivers were transported to the local hospital as a precaution via Lewisboro VAC. GBFD remained on scene until the vehicles were removed by the towing company. Units operated on the scene for about 1 hour.
