Snowmobiler runs into tree in East Pembroke

posted by Billie Owens in accident, east pembroke.

A snowmobiler has struck a tree on a trail just north of 2274 Angling Road. East Pembroke Fire Department is responding along with Mercy medics.

The victim is unable to get off the trail.

UPDATE 6:35 p.m.: Mercy Flight status to fly is requested and the caller is told it is unable to fly.

UPDATE 6:38 p.m.: The victim is said to be off the trail, and an emergency responder is "taking a snowmobile to the accident."

UPDATE 6:40 p.m.: A Mercy Flight helicopter out of Buffalo has been started toward the accident scene. A landing zone is to be established at Pembroke School.

UPDATE 6:58 p.m.: Mercy Flight says it's two minutes away from landing. The pilot is told the victim seems to have only internal injuries and is awaiting their arrival inside the ambulance.

UPDATE 7:13 p.m: East Pembroke Fire Department and Mercy medics are back in service. Presumably, the victim is being taken to Strong Memorial Hospital.

Perhaps Strong, but also perhaps ECMC since the accident was in Pembroke and the helicopter is from Buffalo.

Lincoln, A neighbor went down, in a bar, in the Pembroke area and was airlifted to Strong. Not sure why that was the hospital of choice.

The reason they usually go to strong is that they can get there faster because they are usually flying with with a tailwind, since the prevailing wind here comes from the southwest. I know this because my cousin was in an ATV accident in corfu a while back and got flown to strong, and when asked why, that is the answer his parents got.
