504 8th Street, Saxton, PA 16678

Purported Heavy Truck MVA

October 5, 2016

Rescue 35 and Unit 15 were alerted around 1500 today for a motor vehicle accident in the area of 6th and Shoups Streets. Crews arrived on scene to find a Ford 250 upright with an overturned trailer. The boom lift on the trailer was still attached by chains. Crews worked to release the trailer from the truck's hitch, then worked to stabilize leaking fluids and provide suppression. SR 913 was closed for approximately an hour while crews worked to upright the trailer and boom lift. Several residents were without power, as the trailer clipped a utility pole which resulted in a line breaker tripping. Penelec reset the breaker and restored the power. Saxton Fire Police assisted on scene. The accident is under investigation.
