At 11:58 a.m. on Tuesday July 19 the Brewster Fire Department was dispatched to a motorcycle collision with injuries at the intersection of Freeman’s Way and Long Pond Road. Ambulance 243, Heavy Rescue 241, and Car 231 (Chief Moran) responded on the initial request. On arrival units found a 22 year old male who had been ejected from his motorcycle lying in the roadway with severe traumatic injuries. After a rapid assessment of the patients injuries by Brewster paramedics and EMT’s a request for a Med Flight helicopter intercept at the Barnstable County Airport was made through Barnstable County Dispatch. The patient was quickly packaged and loaded onto the ambulance for immediate transport to the airport and a Boston area trauma center.
Our department would like to thank the off duty firefighters from surrounding communities who stopped to provide medical treatment to the victim prior to the arrival of Brewster personnel. The accident remains under investigation by the Brewster Police Department.
