A Peapod Box Truck driver is lucky to have escaped serious injury or death following a one-vehicle accident on Girdle Ridge Road earlier this morning. Katonah Fire Department, along with Katonah-Bedford Hills Ambulance Corps, was dispatched to the MVA around 10:30. Cars 2211, 2212, 2213, Rescue 17, Engine 115, and Engine 117 responded. Car 2213 requested that NYSEG be notified as the truck had crashed into a tree near a stone wall and had taken down electric wires. Katonah Fire units arrived on scene and secured it, closing down Girdle Ridge Road between Maple Avenue and Girdle Ridge Drive. KBHVAC arrived, along with Westchester Emergency Medical Services, to treat the driver, who had suffered minor injuries. Soon after, NYSEG arrived to deal with the downed power lines, while a tow truck arrived to remove the damaged truck. Katonah units were operating at the scene for approximately 90 minutes, returning in service around 12 noon.

Units: Car 2211, Car 2212, Car 2213, Rescue 17, Engne 115, Engine 117, KBHVAC, WEMS
