Early in the morning hours of 4/27/14, Aetna along with NCC EMS Medic 3, and ALS 28 were dispatched to Library Ave at E Main St for an MVC - Not Alert.  As units were responding, Fireboard advised that Newark Police were on scene advising two subjects heavily trapped.  This added Medic 6 and UD-1, and 9-8 requested that the next due rescue company (12-6) be added as well.  Units arrived to find a single pickup truck vs a tree with heavy entrapment.  Unfortunately both victims had succumbed to their injuries prior to arrival.  ALS pronounced both patients and the scene was turned over to NPD for the investigation.  Later in the morning once the investigation was complete, Rescue 8 returned to the scene to exticate the victims.

Units that Responded: Rescue 8, 9-5, Squrt 7, A-8, A-9, A-7, Medic 3, Medic 6, ALS 28, UD-1, UD-2, 12-6, Fire Police.
