Car strikes Tractor Trailer near Chewy Fulfillment
Tue. Mar 10th 2020

For the second time in as many days Hanover Township Fire and Medic 9 were dispatched for a 2 vehicle MVA with entrapment on New Commerce Blvd in the area of the Chewy Fulfillment Center. Units arrived to find a sedan that had struck the trailer of a tractor trailer on the road sending the car off the roadway into the trees. Command confirmed the entrapment on location with one occupant whose legs were pinned under the dash and steering column. Rescue crews were able to free the occupant in under 10 minutes. The occupant was transported to an area trauma center and there is no current word on the condition of said occupant. 

 

While HTFD crews were handling this incident a second incident response was struck for the 1000 Block of Hanover St in the Industrial Park a short ways away from the vehicle crash for a contractor that struck a high pressure gas main with a gradall. That incident was handled by a mutual aid response from Nanticoke City FD.
