Just after 3pm on Sunday, May 29th, South Salem firefighters were dispatched to a reported rollover with extrication on Route 35 near the Shell station. As units were responding, the Westchester EMS (WEMS) medic who was first on scene, reported that all the occupants had removed themselves from the vehicle, or self extricated safely. Car 2451 was the first arriving fire unit and updated the location as west of the Shell station, on the hill adjacent to the Meadows and that a single vehicle had rolled over the guardrail.

While Route 35 was shut down and traffic diverted through Mark Mead Rd., firefighters made sure the vehicle was secure and began removing the debris from the road. Lewisboro VAC and WEMS treated and transported the victims.

Units operated on scene for about two hours before returning to service.

Units: 2451, 2452, 2453, R21, E166 U79
