SCHUYLKILL COUNTY, PA – At 12:14 PM on Wednesday, April 19, Schuylkill County 9-1-1 dispatched Fire District 9 (Sheppton-Oneida), Mahanoy City Rescue 993 (West End) and Shenandoah ALS to 294 Phineyville Road in East Union Township for a motor vehicle accident with entrapment.
Responding units were advised of a car versus farm tractor with one person trapped in the car. Squad 9-70 and Engine 9-10 arrived on the scene to find a tractor vs Mustang with the tractor pushed into the drivers side of the car and the car pushed into the embankment.
Crews found a female driver in the Mustang claiming to be uninjured. Firefighters then helped the driver out of the passenger side of the vehicle. With no entrapment, Rescue 993 was recalled from the incident.
Once crews had the driver out of the vehicle, the patient decided she wanted further medical evaluation and requested EMS for transport to a local hospital. Shenandoah Medic 6404 arrived on the scene and loaded the patient for transport.
The Pennsylvania State Police arrived on the scene and interviewed both drivers as part of their investigation. The accident was cleaned up and fire department equipment was clear of the scene by 1:30 PM.
