At 1109 hours, Rescue Squad 2, Rescue Squad 7, Engine Company 2, and Engine Company 1002 were alerted to Three Notch Road and Golden Beach Road for the MVA, with reports of entrapment and atleast one car on fire.

Rescue Squad 2, Engine 23, and Chief 2A went enroute at dispatch and arrived with Engine 1002 and Chief 1002 to find a 2 vehicle “T-Bone” style collision with both cars on fire, 3 patients trapped, and extensive damage to both vehicles.

Rescue Squad 2 went to work extricating a trapped Priority 1 patient while Engine 1002 stretched 2 lines, one to each vehicle that was on fire. Rescue Squad 7 arrived and assisted units with extrication.

Chief 2A held the “Charlotte Hall Command” and one patient was transported to Capital Regional Medical Center.

The Officers and Members of the Mechanicsville VFD offer our sincere condolences to the families affected by this incident.
