Children involved in serious South New Berlin MVC

SOUTH NEW BERLIN–First responders from at least four area fire companies responded to a serious two-vehicle motor vehicle collision about four miles south of the Hamlet of South New Berlin on State Highway 8 early Thursday morning.



A call of a reported head-on collision with multiple personal injuries and entrapment came into County Dispatch 911 call center shortly after 7 a.m. from a witness at the scene.

EMS crews from Cooperstown Medical Transport, Village of Sidney Fire and Norwich Ambulance worked in concert with South New Berlin, New Berlin, Mount Upton and Norwich Fire Departments to extricate patients from the wreckage.

Scanner reports indicated that children were among the passengers in at least one of the vehicles, and county dispatchers confirmed that five patients had been transported to area hospitals via ambulance. Another was transported by LifeNet helicopter which was en route to Wilson Memorial Regional Trauma Center in Johnson City at 8:57 a.m. A medical examiner on the scene had also requested funeral home transport.
