Eight people, including a 16-month-old girl, suffered injuries following this two-car collision in Dix Hills, Long Island, New York. The Dix Hills Fire Department (DHFD) responded to the accident with three ambulances, two heavy-rescue trucks and a paramedic unit, along with 25 fire/rescue personnel. DHFD Rescue Squad ambulances transported the patients to Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment,; mostly for neck and back injuries. The child pictured here, who was sitting unrestrained on her mother_s lap when the crash occurred, suffered lacerations on the face, head, shoulder and back. She was fully immobilized. Units were under the command of Chief Larry Feld and Third Assistant Chief Thomas Magno. Visitwww.jems.com/extras for more scene images.
