HAMPTON, NJ - At approximately 3:56 p.m. on April 10, 2009 the Hampton Fire Co (Sta.13), Hampton Emergency Squad (Sta.13) and North County EMS Partnership (BLS 2751) were dispatched to a reported MVC on Route 31 in the area of Smith Street in the Borough of Hampton. BLS 2751 and EMS Chief 135 arrived shortly after and found two Ford Explorers in the roadway, both with heavy front end damage. It was quickly determined that there were two patients injured, one of which was entrapped in the brown SUV, a third patient, the driver of the white suv was also entrapped and unconscious. Squad members quickly began treating the injured patients, Hunterdon Medical Center ALS(EMS 2) was then requested and a Medical helicopter was placed on standby. Fire Chief 13, Engine 1365 and Rescue 1389 arrived a short time later, as one crew began stabilization of the white SUV using struts and step chocks a second crew performed a door pop to extricate the front seat passenger of the brown SUV, upon completion of the door pop, that crew quickly returned to assist in extrication of the driver of the white SUV. Chief 13 then requested High Bridge Rescue (Sta.14) for there heavy rescue truck (Heavy Rescue 1456) for addition extrication tools due to the complexity of the damage and entrapment on the white suv. While BLS crews from 27 Rescue, Hampton and High Bridge Emerg Squad tended to the patients, EMS branch requested for two medical helicopters to fly and a second ALS unit to meet one of the ambulances en route to the hospital. A landing zone was then established at Hampton School by Engine 1363 and an Engine from Glen Gardner Fire Department (Sta.12). One patient from the brown SUV was transported by BLS 1351 to the landing zone where the patient was the flown to a trauma center via medical helicopter, 27 Rescue transported the second patient of the brown SUV by ground to a local hospital. Extrication of the driver of the white SUV continued, it was determined the best method of extrication would be to remove both passenger side doors and fold the roof back to gain the best access to the patient who was now conscious. Once removal of the doors and roof was complete, the patient was placed on a backboard and transported to the landing zone by a High Bridge ambulance, the patient was then flown to a trauma canter via medical helicopter. Hampton Fire Co, Hampton Emergency Squad, North County EMS Partnership, High Bridge Emergency Squad, Glen Gardner Fire Department, two Hunterdon Medical Center ALS units, NorthSTAR Medevac, Atlantic Air One Medevac and NJ State Police responded to the scene.
