At 1619 hours, Station 33 (Honey Brook) and Medic 93 (Brandywine Hospital) were dispatched to the area of Route 322 and Cupola Road in Honey Brook Township for an automobile accident reported with entrapment. Squad 33 (Kline) came across the accident first after returning from training and began controlling vehicle traffic around the accident. Deputy 33 (Klinger), Ambulance 33-2, and Medic 93-3 responded at 1620 and were advised by Chester County Fire Board of a single vehicle accident into a pole with wires down and a subject still inside.
Deputy 33 arrived confirmed the report, requested PP&L Electric to the scene priority one and established Horeshoe Pike Command. Apparatus and crews staged up the street and helped keep the patient in the vehicle until the electric company could remove the electrical hazard from the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was evaluated and transported by EMS to a local hospital. Crewsremained on the scene while PP&L cleared the pole and debris from the roadway and cleared the scene at 1806 hours.
The Honey Brook Fire Company would like to remind everyone to never approach any downed wires on the ground. Live electric lines can appear motionless and silent and can seriously injury or kill without warning.
