Monday proved to be a fairly steady day for QFD Volunteers.
The first call of the day was for a vehicle accident at Rt. 472 and Drywells Road in Eden Township at 7:59 am. Crews arrived to find a two-vehicle accident in the intersection with two injuries. The Company took care of hazard control while the QFD Fire Police directed traffic in the area.
The second call of the day was for another accident less than 1/4 mile from the first in the 800 block of Kirkwood Pike in Colerain Township. Rescue 57 and Engine 572 arrived to a one-vehicle roll-over accident with several injured. The car was back on on four wheels in the field, so there was not much needed other than traffic control.
During the second call, QFD Fire Police were requested to assist the PA State Police on a police incident in East Drumore Township. As of this posting (4:30 pm), the Fire Police, along with mutual aid from Refton and Rawlinsville were on scene conducting a large scale traffic detour and diversion. As you travel this evening, please avoid the area of Rt. 372 (Buck Road), West of Quarryville Borough. Also, please remember that the Fire Police are 100% volunteer and have been out in the driving rain since 11:30 am.
