The accident occurred just yards from the Bent Mountain Rescue Squad building. But no one was there. That's because last month, the County Board of Supervisors moved Bent Mountain's three paid firefighters to the Back Creek Rescue Squad several miles down the road. Meredyth Censullo reports, some Bent Mountain residents say, today's accident was a classic example of their worst fear.

Rutgers is led by the nation's sixth-rated quarterback in Mike McMahon whose led Rutgers to a record already improved over last year's 1-10 performance.
The Scarlet Knights are 2 and OH and McMahon is averaging 286 passing yards a game and is completing 63 percent of his passes, stats that have drawn praise from Tech's Michael Vick.
