The Jericho Volunteer Fire Department responded to an MVA with a car versus a utility pole at the intersection of Route 107 and the entrance to SUNY Old Westbury Campus in Brookville. Arriving units found an SUV up the guide wire of a utility pole with the driver still inside. Crews from Heavy Rescue Unit 949 stabilized the vehicle and used an A-frame ladder to remove the woman from her car. She refused medical attention. The utility company had to shut the power down so the vehicle could safely be removed from its position.
