Auto Accident With Confinement...





This past Wednesday morning while coming home from the Barbour's an auto accident was dispatched for the intersection of Church and Mulberry roads, Silver Spring Township. Since it was dispatched as a rollover and it was on my route home I thought I would stop by and take a few photos. I should insert here that I go no place without my camera, it is always on the seat beside my.

I arrived just before the first rig to find a pickup truck that had rolled onto its side and came to rest on all four wheels after being struck by a tractor-trailer. Soon after apparatus began arriving from Co. 31 (Silver Springs), Co. 33 (New Kingston) and Co. 27 (Citizens of Mechanicsburg). Crews found on person injured and confined to the pickup.

The photos follow along with the functions the firefighter performed, in the first shot they are stabilizing the truck to prevent movement. In the second photos they are using the spreaders (jaws) to pop the passenger side door and in the third in fourth photos they removed the glass and used the cutters to cut the hinges and completely remove the door. The last photo they are spreading stay dry on the fluids that spilled from the tractor.

That is all for this week, tomorrow the Hershey Bears open at home against the Baby Pens in the first game of the second round of the playoffs and the Washing Capitols open at home against the NHL Pens in the first game of the second round of the playoffs. Go Bears and Caps, send those Penguins scurrying across the ice.

Did you have your vest on? You know you were working on the highway. If you don't have one in your truck, we can get you one... HaHa

No vest for me, I used a 70-200 mm lens so I did not need to be on the road I was able to photograph from the safety of the stream bank. I wear one enough at work I do not want my own.
