2/19 – At about 0845, GTVFC was dispatched to the area of 9983 Townline Rd for a report of an overturned vehicle. 700 and 7001 arrived on location and reported a vehicle rolled over in a ditch. Crescent Rescue 208 was dispatched to assist on the initial dispatch, but was placed in service when 700 reported the patient was self-extricated. Squad 707 transported one patient with ALS from Emergycare to UPMC Hamot.
Then, at just after 1000, as 707 was still at Hamot, Greenfield was dispatched to another report of a vehicle accident on I-90 eastbound at mile marker 37 (near I-86). Dispatch reported a tractor trailer t-boned a car, sending the car over the embankment. When chief 700 arrived on location, it was determined that there were no injuries. Crescent Rescue 208 was again placed in service and command was transferred to 7001 and crews assisted with traffic control.
Pennsylvania State Police in Lawrence Park are investigating both crashes.
