On November 22, 2020 at 13:34 hours the East Fishkill Fire District, EMStar Ambulance Service and New York State Police were dispatched to an MVA on the Taconic State Parkway north bound by mile marker 40.2, with possible entrapment and a possible vehicle fire. Assistant Chief 39-4 arrived at 13:42 and confirmed entrapment with one victim, no fire and updated the location as to just south of the Carpenter Road exit. Even though the car was heavily damaged the patient appeared to have minor injuries after the initial evaluation. The patient was extricated from the vehicle and en-route to the hospital by 14:10. Awesome job by all. Fire Police and some of the equipment remained on scene to help with traffic and clean up until the vehicle was removed.
