The Dix Hills Fire Department was dispatched to a motor vehicle accident  on Vanderbilt Parkway near Waydale Drive, Saturday night,  December 1, at about 10:50 p.m.  Firefighters used heavy rescue “Jaws of  Life” tools to  extricate the driver of a Honda Civic that struck a utility pole  and tree, snapping the pole. The patient was freed within ten minutes using two Hurst tools to cut through the roof and doors of the wreckage. The male patient was transported to Huntington Hospital with non-life threatening injuries by the Dix Hills Rescue Squad. Thirty firefighters and EMS personnel were on the scene with three heavy rescue trucks, two ambulances, first responder and paramedic  units, under the command of Assistant Chiefs Tom Magno and Tom Napolitano.
