Reese & Community Volunteer Fire Company responded to a multi vehicle collision in the vicinity of Cederhurst Road and Emory Road (Rt. 91) in our 9-6 Box area at 7:21 PM this evening (February 1st).
Units arrived on scene to find two vehicles involved in a collision which resulted in a patient rescue. A septic truck had run off the roadway, down an embankment and flipped over on its roof resulting in the vehicle leaking sewage. Luckily, the driver was able to self extricate without assistance.
A female occupant of the second vehicle involved in the incident, a SUV, was assisted out of the back seat of the vehicle and taken to a local trauma center for further evaluation.
Due to the nature of this incident, both Maryland Department of the Environment and and Hazmat were requested to the scene.
RFVC apparatus on scene included Engine 91, Rescue Squad 9, Engine Tanker 94, Medic 98, and Fire Police 9.
Thank you to Gamber & Community Fire Company and Westminster Fire Department Westminster Fire Department for filling in at the Station while our crews where on scene.
