Car crashes off bridge, into brook

The driver of a car that rolled off the road and into the water at the intersection of Osborne Hill Road and Glen Arden Drive was pulled from the car shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 24.

The Fairfield Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call from a local resident at 3:52 p.m.

Engine 2, Ladders 1 and 2, and Car 3 arrived on scene at 3:54 p.m. to find a vehicle overturned in the brook with occupants inside the car. Further investigation found that the passenger had extricated himself and was providing initial care to the driver, who was his brother.

A witness told that the driver had a seizure. Firefighters at the scene said there was a medical issue in the incident.

After securing the scene and assessing both patients, firefighters extricated the driver and assisted American Medical Response in the transfer of both occupants to ambulances for transport to the hospital.

United Illuminating and Aquarion were also called to the scene for repairs to a utility pole and fire hydrant which were damaged in the accident.

Engine 2 remained on scene until the vehicle was removed from the stream and was the last Fire Department unit to clear at 4:48 p.m.
