Fire Engine Accident - Susquehanna Twp, Dauphin Co, PA
Detail >>
On April 15, 2007, around 3 p.m., Susquehanna Township's Rescue Fire Company Engine 37-1 was responding to a vehicle accident at Route 322 and Interstate 81, when it was involved in an accident of its own. The engine was traveling north on Sixth Street with lights and sirens, when about a half a mile from its station, a Chevrolet Blazer, driven by Adam Golden, age 20, of Mechanicsburg, pulled out from Lucknow Road into its path. The driver of the engine swerved to the left to avoid the collision, but the Blazer hit the engine's front passenger side and then ran into a tree, while the fire engine hopped a curb and rolled over onto two parked cars along Finney Avenue. The three injured firefighters crawled out of the wrecked engine and went to the aid of the driver who had hit the tree. Golden was flown to Hershey Medical Center, where he died from his injuries three days later. The firefighters were taken by ambulance. Progress and Edgemont fire companies stood by in their own stations to handle township calls while firefighters from Halifax stood by in the Rescue fire station. After a 3? month investigation, Golden was found to be at fault and the fire company was cleared. No charges were filed.
