CORRECTED: Life Star Lands At New Hartford Elementary School To Transport Rider To Hospital
We received the following photos from Jennifer LeClaire showing Life Star’s landing at New Hartford Elementary School on Monday to assist in transporting an injured motorcycle rider to hospital:
We have corrected the information contained in this report based on information received from Mark Worsman, the New Hartford Fire Department Fire Chief, and Dave, a resident who lives in the vicinity of the accident. Many thanks to both gentlemen for sending in the correct information; 9 a.m. Thursday, August 9.
A Life Star helicopter landed in the field space at New Hartford Elementary School this past Monday afternoon to transport a motorcycle rider who had been injured in a one-vehicle crash on Route 219 on the corner before Farmington River Turnpike. According to local police the rider was thrown from his motorcycle; he was fortunately wearing a helmet which absorbed a large part of the impact. The rider was Life Starred to Hartford Hospital where he is listed in Stable condition.
The area around the bridge on Black Bridge Road, close to where the accident occurred, has been said to be a treacherous one for motorcycle riders due to the curves in the road and, according to residents, to the excessive speed at which vehicles travel on that road. In 2011 a resident of Ten Street attended a Board of Selectmen meeting asking the selectmen to do something to slow down the traffic travelling through the small, residential neighborhood in which New Hartford Elementary School is located. The resident asked for speed bumps, or humps, to be placed along Black Bridge Road, just as they have been placed on Cedar Lane in front of the Bakerville School. As of the date of the writing of this report, no action has resulted from the concerned resident’s request.
Many Thanks to Jennifer LeClaire for the wonderful photos of Life Star at New Hartford Elementary School while assisting a motorcycle rider who had just had an accident on Black Bridge Road.
