An Orleans Fire Department ambulance en-route to Cape Cod Hospital
was involved in a serious head on crash with a dump truck on Friday
March 11, 2005 at approximately 17:50 hrs.  The accident, on Willow Street,
West Yarmouth, near the Yarmouth Campgrounds, required an all hands
response by the Yarmouth Fire-Rescue Department. Five ambulances,
several fire engines with Jaws of Life tools, and the Hyannis Fire Dept.
Heavy Rescue were committed for over an hour extricating the driver
of the ambulance, who was transported along with the attendants and

may have delayed the helicopter. A Level I MCI was declared and
Willow Street (Exit 7) from Route 6 to Route 28 was closed for
approximately 2 hours during the rescue.
Prayers are with all involved.
