A late night crash in the 3800 block of Concordia Rd brought Engine 7-2 and the Air to assist West Hempfield Fire / Rescue and the West Hempfield Township Police Department. Personnel arrived to find a single vehicle accident into the structure. Upon investigation, all occupants self-extricated and the residents were uninjured. Lancaster County Rescue Task Force #36 was notified to inspect and shore up the structure so the vehicle could be removed. Company 7 operated for about 40 minutes before being released by Command and returning.
Company 7 was dispatched along with Rescue 80 (Columbia Borough Fire Department) to the intersection of 462 (Columbia Ave) and Prospect Rd for a reported 2 vehicle accident. Chief 7 (Gantz,Jr) and Captain 7 (Duquin) arrived and confirmed the report with WHTPD already on the scene. Crews controlled fluids and cleaned up the debris field while awaiting the tow company. Crews cleared the scene a short time later.
