Folks around NB were wondering what all the sirens were about Friday night/Saturday morning. NB Fire and EMS responded to three separate, one vehicle, injury accidents, all reportedly involving alcohol, which occurred in about a seven hour span.
NB Fire reports that one accident happened out in Henry Township, off Cygnet Road, near Mitchell (“Sponsler’s Woods). Two were injured with Life Flight responding. The jaws of life were used to extract one of the victims. Condition of the victims is not known.
The second accident occurred at the intersection of East Broadway and Poe Road, as an eastbound vehicle left the road way and ended up in the Rocky Ford Creek. One victim was transported to hospital. Condition unknown. The jaw of life were again used to extra the victim.
Finally, about 7:00 this morning, a driver lost control of their vehicle on State Route 18, near Liberty High Road, west of the village. They also left the roadway and were extracted with the jaws of life and one was transported from the scene.
We hope to have additional details and photos later.
It was a very short and busy night for the volunteers of the North Baltimore Fire and EMS. We need the be thankful that we have folks that are willing to give so much, to help so many!
And then, on top of that, today is Emergency Services Day at the Village Hall, with NB Fire and EMS on hand and serving hot dogs, chips and pop to resident that are encouraged to stop by, until 2:00 today (Saturday), to sign up for Revere 911 and learn more about the need to gather additional funding for our EMS.
