Vehicle In Lake – Box 1006 – Brookside Pkwy

On April 29th, 2014 @ 1908hrs – Company 10 was dispatched for an unconscious person on the side of the road. After arriving on-scene it was discovered the person was involved in a vehicle accident. Crews attended to the patient and assisted EMS personnel on-scene. The vehicle in question had apparently lost control and ran over a fire hydrant which was knocked 30-50 feet from its original location. The vehicle then ran down an embankment, across a field, up another embankment into the lake on the other side which was approximately 150-200 yards from where the vehicle apparently first lost control. WSA was made aware of the incident. Rescue 1 was initially dispatched but placed in service once determined no other occupants were in the vehicle. Response 10 was sent back to the station to obtain absorbent pads and booms. The vehicle was half submerged up to the bottom of the windows in the lake approximately 10 feet from the bank. Engine 10 and Response 10 crews used one of the booms and two dozen absorbent pads along the lake edge and in an overflow drainage ditch to contain the oil leak into the water. A tow truck was dispatched and arrived on scene but was unable to gain access to the vehicle due to the wet ground and weather conditions. The scene was turned over to Fauquier County Sheriffs office.
