Auto Accident - City of Beacon Fire Department - Newburgh-Beacon Bridge Toll Plaza - July 1985 - From my archives : These photo's were taken in July of 1985 and are of an auto accident that occurred on Interstate 84 at the toll plaza of the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge in the City of Beacon N.Y. I was awakened at approximately 1:00 am on a warm July morning by a phone call from the New York State Police requesting that I respond with my photography equipment to a serious accident at the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge toll plaza. When I arrived at the scene, I could not believe what I saw....... A tractor-trailer had driven over a car containing I believe five young women completely destroying their car and leaving them all heavily entangled in what was left of their vehicle. I was greeted by several troopers all of who asked me to document the scene and offered to help me in any way I needed. I also had help from the City of Beacon Fire Department and Chief Steve VanBuren who allowed me to get into some elevated positions to get some unique images. The City of Beacon Fire Department operated with the assistance of the Chelsea and Rombout Fire Departments and the EMS was handled by the Beacon Volunteer Ambulance Corps with assistance from Sloper-Willen and Mobile Life Support Ambulance. These are some of the photo's that I took of the incident and are digital scans from slides...... I believe all the woman were released from the hospital within several days after the incident - An incredible accident with an equally incredible outcome........ If anybody has any more details they would like to add or correct, please let me know..... Thanks....Bill

22JAN08 Springettsbury Township 3rd Alarm Apartment Fire : In what ended up being a strange case of Deja Vu Springettsbury Township firefighters were summoned to the Suburban Park Apartments for a structure fire at around 0730. 911 reported multiple calls of a working fire with jumpers from the 3rd floor. 

Firefighters arrived and found a fire with a strong hold on the third floor and attic space of the building. An interior attack was attempted but abandoned as interior conditions became too dangerous. 2nd and 3rd alarms were quickly struck and the fire was controlled by multiple elevated master streams.

The Deja Vu came into play when it was determined the fire had been started by a resident intent on killing himself.  He lit the fire, waited for it to grow and then jumped from his third floor balcony. Of course he lived and was arrested by PD.  

A very similar incident occured in the same complex less than one year ago.  Hopefully other residents have realized now that this method is not effective and will not keep trying to off themselves in this manner.
