Mahopac Falls Fire, EM, Fire Police, EMStar paramedics and multiple Carmel Police units were dispatched to a serious two-vehicle MVA at Route 6N and Myrtle Avenue recently. Arriving units found Route 6N completely blocked by the vehicles. Carmel Police and Mahopac Falls Fire Police immediately began detours for the heavy afternoon traffic. Assistant Chief Brian Sacher had command and assisted Putnam County Medic 3 with the triage and packaging of a patient, who was transported to Danbury Hospital. Roads were closed for an hour as Carmel Police continued their investigation.
