Accident with Entrapment Involving a Tractor Trailer
Thu, Oct 26th, 2017 1:56:00 pm The WVFC along with Engine 26 (Robesonia), Engine/Rescue 34 (Newmanstown), Rescue 18 (Western Berks FD) and Western Berks EMS were dispatched for a vehicle accident with entrapment involving a tractor trailer in the 1200 Blk of W. Penn Ave. in Heidelberg Twp.

Assistant 47 took command and immediately requested an additional rescue company which brought Rescue 31 from Keystone of Myerstown and an additional engine from Marion Fire Co. Rescue 30 (Mt Pleasant) also responded due to covering Engine/Rescue 34.

The accident involved a single vehicle going westbound which veered for an unknown reason into the path of an empty fuel tanker which was eastbound.

It took approximately 30 minutes for personnel to extricate the driver. The highway was closed for 3 1/2 hours until the roadway could be cleared and the vehicles could be removed by tow companies.

Fire police from Richland also assisted fire police from the companies who were already on scene. The accident is under investigation by the PA State Police.
