By Assistant Fire Chief Adam Grossman
April 24, 2017

In the early morning at 0200, the Westwood Fire Company and Brandywine Hospital Medic 93 were dispatched to the 271.8 mile marker of the Eastbound Route 30 Bypass in Valley Township for an auto accident reported serious involving a motorcycle. Calls to 911 indicated a tractor trailer had collided with a motorcycle and it was unknown on the extent of injuries.

Initial reports indicated one patient but after further investigation by bystanders a second patient was located. A second ambulance was dispatched to respond from the Washies of Coatesville and two medics were already on the street.

Assistant Chief Grossman arrived and established "Bypass Command", reporting a walking wounded patient on the highway and a second patient down an embankment.

Ambulance 44-1, Medic 93-1 and Medic 93-2 arrived at 0208 and the Firefighter/EMTs on scene extricated the patient from the downhill embankment and began immediate care. Ambulance 41-2 treated a second patient and eventually transported to Paoli Hospital. Despite a rapid response and quick actions by first responders, one patient succumbed to their injuries.

Rescue 44 arrived and provided scene lighting until the portable light tower arrived. In addition Rescue 44 blocked the roadway from oncoming traffic for responder safety.

Mutual aid Fire Police from Sadsburyville, Wagontown and Modena responded and shut down the Route 30 Bypass at Lincoln Highway in Boyd's Corner and Airport Road in Valley. Traffic 44 and PLT 44 responded to the scene and provided lighting while the Pennsylvania State Police conducted an investigation of the accident.
