Sunday, August 28th, 2011 – On Sunday evening Lincoln 184/610 and Elizabeth Twp EMS 520 were alerted for a vehicle accident with unknown injuries with fluids on the road at the intersection of Liberty Way and Finney Road.  Engine 184 arrived on scene to find a head-on type collision between a car and pickup truck.  Ambulance 610 arrived on scene shortly after.  Crews setup traffic control, cribbed the vehicles, and disconnected the batteries.  One patient was transported to a local hospital by Elizabeth Twp EMS for minor injuries.  Both vehicles were towed by Mendlowitz Trucking.

August 7th, 2011 – Around 2am crews were alerted for a vehicle accident with a vehicle into a pole, with wires down, and the vehicle was on fire.  The call was originally placed as being at the Clairton Bridge on the Glassport side, so Glassport station 161, Clairton station 123, and Dravosburg station 131 were initially dispatched.  Police and 161 Chief found the accident to be near Lou Ron Trucking on Lincoln Blvd and requested Lincoln station 184 be dispatched.

Engine 184 and Ambulance 610 arrived on scene and setup lighting and assisted with patient care of one person that was laying in the roadway.  Engine 161 had the fire out and was assisting with patient care of a second person laying in the roadway.  Clairton EMS was on scene and Elizabeth Twp EMS arrived on scene as well once it was determined to be in Lincoln.   Chief 184 requested Liberty Service 183 for traffic control at Bellbridge, and Rescue 183 to the Bellbridge soccer field for a Landing Zone.  The patient was transported to the landing zone and flown by Stat Medevac to a Pittsburgh hospital.

Unfortunately, the second person did not survive the accident.  Lincoln police, the Allegheny County Medical Examiners, and Allegheny County Homicide are investigating the accident.
