Another fire apparatus/vehicle has been struck on an Interstate-but thankfully this time no Firefighters were injured. A York Area (York, PA) United Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief escaped injury this morning as his command vehicle was struck by a tractor trailer on Interstate 83. The crash occurred about 0900 hours as YAUFR units were dispatched to crashes on the interstate’s rainy roads.Photos below from YAUFR show the twisted metal that once was the command vehicle on the shoulder of the interstate.
The command vehicle’s driver, a YAUFR Battalion Chief, was headed north in order to turn around and respond to a crash in the southbound lanes. But while still traveling north, about a half-mile north of Exit 24 in Emigsville, the chief spotted a vehicle on the side of the road and stopped to render aid. He parked on the berm of the road and turned his flashing lights on. Within a matter of seconds after the chief got out of the vehicle, “is when his vehicle was struck according to Fire Chief Dan Hoff. Glad all are well.
