One person had to be extricated from his vehicle and airlifted from the scene of a two-car crash that left two others hospitalized in Putnam County, officials said.
First responders in Mahopac were dispatched to Baldwin Place Road near the intersection of Route 6 at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24, where there was a report of a multi-car crash, Mahopac Falls Fire Department Public Information Officer Jack Casey said.
Upon arrival, first responders found two vehicles that had been totaled, with at least one person in need of being extricated. Crews called for an emergency helicopter, which airlifted the driver of one of the vehicles to an area hospital, while two others were transported by the Mahopac Falls Fire Department ambulance for treatment.
The condition of the three hospitalized was not immediately available on Thursday morning, and it is unclear what caused the crash, which forced the roadway to be temporarily closed. The investigation into the crash is ongoing by the Carmel Police Department.
