Around 0130 Westwood EMS was dispatched to the 1200 block of Lincoln Highway in Valley Township for an auto accident. The text indicated a vehicle into a pole and house and the assignment was upgraded calling for the Rescue Squad and Advanced Life Support.

Arriving within minutes Assistant 44 and Ambulance 44-1 confirmed the report and found nobody around the vehicle. With no patient on scene, Medic 93 was recalled.

Firefighters stood by until the car was removed by Fling's Towing and provided traffic control. Peco energy was notified they would need to respond due to the utility pole being completely sheared off. No power outages were reported in the area.
