Route 91 and Deer Park Road Serious Collision

Gamber & Community Fire Co. units were alerted for a motor vehicle collision on Rt. 91 at Deer Park Road on Tuesday afternoon at approximately 1:30 pm. Rescue Squad 9 from Reese Fire Co. was also dispatched on the initial call.

Upon arrival of first due units along with Captain 13, Alan Barnes, a second rescue squad and two additional medic units were requested. The collision involved a Subaru SUV and a large refrigerated box truck with both drivers trapped inside their vehicles and a second person trapped inside the SUV.

Crews worked to extricate the SUV’s occupants first and then focused on the trapped driver inside the box truck. Rescue tools were used to remove the truck’s windshield, door, and part of the roof. Once this was accomplished, the driver was removed and placed in the medic unit for transport to the hospital. Due to the inclement weather conditions and heavy rain, helicopters were grounded, and all patients were transported by ambulance.

Once the rescues were completed, crews worked to clean up the scene and control the fuel leak from the truck. Carroll County’s Haz Mat Unit was special called to the scene.

Rt. 91 was closed for several hours during the afternoon rush due to clean-up and accident investigation and reconstruction.
