Lower Alsace Crash

On July 29 shortly before 3p.m. Rescue 1 was dispatched to assist Lower Alsace (Co4) on a vehicle crash with injuries at Friedensburg Rd & Spook Lane. Additional information indicated a building was struck. Arriving units found a pickup truck with attached trailer had lost control coming down the hill and struck the building and gas service at 705A Friedensburg Rd. An additional EMS unit & ladder truck from Reading City was also requested. EMS tended to the victims while Co 4 members stretched two handlines due to the strong odor of natural gas present. The R1 crew forced entry into the building to secure the utilities. Units stood by until shortly after 4p.m. when the tow company removed the vehicles at which time the structure was turned over to the Codes Dept. and Township Engineer. The crash is under investigation by Central Berks Regional PD.
