Upon arriving at the scene, Roosevelt Fire found that initial reports were at the very least somewhat inaccurate as there was "no entrapment" and reports were "conflicting" as to whether or not any occupants of the vehicles had been ejected.

Even with conflicting reports, the accident itself was indeed serious and once first responders properly analyzed the situation, the call was made to bring in "additional resources" to properly handle the number of individuals who were "seriously injured".


The additional resources in this instance was for two (2) Medivacs.

The press release goes on to state that...

Due to the proximity of the hospital, the decision was made to divert the medivacs to Mid Hudson Regional Hospital to meet the ground transport units.

In total, it was reported that four (4) individuals were transported to area hospitals with injuries that varied in level of severity. No further information was stated as to what condition the patients are in following the accident.


When patients were transported to the hospitals, clean up of the scene began. The accident and the subsequent clean required that route 9G be shut down. The route from Fallkill Road to Hollow Road would be closed for approximately four (4) hours and reopened just before 2pm.


In that time, the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office accident reconstruction team investigated the scene to determine what caused the accident in the first place. The press release concluded with Roosevelt Fire issuing thanks to all the agencies involved in handling the event and that any other questions regarding the accident and its cause can be directed to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office.
