LEWIS COUNTY- A local business played a key role in assisting right after an accident Thursday afternoon in Lowville.
Emergency responders were called out to the scene of a two-car motor vehicle accident on State Route 26, right across from White’s Farm Supply.
Lowville Fire Chief Joe Austin tells us while his crew members were on the way, they learned a victim was still trapped inside one of the vehicles. When responders arrived, they found one of the vehicles flipped on its top with the victim still inside.
Prior to the arrival of emergency responders, Chief Austin says folks from White’s Farm Supply came to the scene and stabilized the vehicle with the use of jacks, which helped stabilize it and prevented any further crushing.
Firefighters worked together with EMS and with the jaws of life, the victim was freed from the wreckage within 10-mintues, according to Chief Austin.
No additional details were made available.
