GERMANTOWN — A woman was airlifted to Albany Medical Center early Sunday morning, following an all-terrain vehicle accident in Germantown, according to fire officials.

The unidentified woman, 23, was found unconscious but alive after the crash, Germantown Second Assistant Chief Philip Salvatore said Sunday.

At about 11:40 p.m., Columbia County 911 sent Germantown Fire Department and Northern Dutchess Paramedics to 360 Old Saw Mill Road after receiving reports that a four-wheel ATV struck a tree.

Arriving firefighters reported there were three victims and requested a LifeNet helicopter for the 23-year-old woman, Salvatore said.

Paramedics examined the woman at the scene and brought her to the baseball field at Palatine Park, where she was placed on the helicopter and flown to Albany, Salvatore said.

Greenport Rescue Squad examined the other two unidentified women at the scene, but both refused medical treatment, Salvatore said.

State police are investigating the accident. Firefighters were back in service at 12:49 a.m.
