Just prior to 5:30pm, the LFC, Witmer Fire Protective Association, Lancaster EMS, and East Lampeter Township Police Department were dispatched to Route 30 Eastbound just prior to Route 340 for a motor vehicle accident.
Additional information from Lancaster County PA 911 reported a single vehicle overturned with a mix of adult and pediatric patients.
First arriving personnel confirmed the report of an overturned vehicle blocking both lanes and all occupants out of the vehicle. Some passing healthcare workers had stopped to care for the patients who thankfully had minor injuries.
EMS cared for and transported all parties for further evaluation while fire and fire police personnel took care of hazards, rerouted traffic, and assisted the tow companies. East Lampeter Township, PA Office of Emergency Management staff was notified of the route closure so that early warning could be provided to eastbound traffic.
This was the LFC’s 427th incident so far in 2022.
