Tractor Trailer into Russo's Pizza Den
   
   
Monday, February 23, 2015
-
At 3:02 a.m. Rescue 56 and Co. 42 Deer Lake were dispatched to a report of a vehicle accident with injuries in the vicinity of Russo's Pizza Den on Rt 61 in W. Brunswick Township. Enroute to the scene, we were advised that additional calls were now reporting that a tractor trailer had hit the building. Rescue 56 arrived on scene and determined that the tractor trailer rig had struck the building and was imbedded in the restaurant's dining room. Pottsville Rescue 63 and Mahanoy City West End Rescue 993 were requested to bring the Schuylkill County Technical Rescue Task Force Collapse Trailers to the scene. Rescuers were able to gain access to the driver by cutting through the sleeper cab. The building had collapsed onto the cab of the truck, trapping the driver. Due to the damage to the truck and building it was necessary to extricate the driver from inside the collapsed dining room. The roof of the dining room was shored to prevent further collapse and the driver was extricated from the truck using the hydraulic rescue tool system. This was the first time since it was organized that all three Rescue Companies, Rescues 56, 63 and 993, that make up the Schuylkill County Technical Rescue Team, had deployed together.
