A few hours and several feet separate two crashes

    Around 0800 on the morning of January 4, 2015, Company 21 responded to the report of an auto accident with unknown injuries. Engine 121 and Mini-Pumper 21 responded within minutes of one another to the scene of the crash (Route 581 off-ramp towards US Route 15 South).


     About six hours later, Assistant Chief Hipple (Chief 221) came across an auto-accident several feet further up the off-ramp. He had Engine 121 dispatched for debris removal and fluid control. The engine crew were on the scene for about half an hour cleaning up glass/parts of the involved vehicle and controlling the spill of dangerous fluids.
