At 20:39 hours on July 1st, just as units were clearing up an accident with overturn, the Islip Fire Department was called back to the same area of the Westbound Sunrise Highway at Islip Ave, this time for an MVA involving a motorcycle.
Units arrived to find a motorcycle accident with the driver in serious condition. The patient was unresponsive and sustained a serious head injury. Due to the nature of the injuries the Suffolk County Police Aviation Unit was requested for a medevac. Islip units as well as Exchange Ambulance treated the patient and stabilized him for the flight. Suffolk Police Helicopter 3 arrived and transported the patient to Stony Brook University Hospital in critical condition.
**The Suffolk County Sheriffs office is currently investigating this crash. Anyone who may have information is asked to contact them.**
