Serious Crash on RT340
February 1, 2018

On the morning of Thursday, February 1st, RE52 was on the way to a medical call as the blocking unit for a sick person on RT340 and Keep Tryst Rd. As they were going west on RT340, they looked over on the east bound lane and witnessed a car being rear-ended by a pickup truck at a high rate of speed. They cleared from the 1st call and turned around to respond to the crash. As RE52 arrived, they found a 3 vehicle crash with the driver of a small blue car trapped inside. The crew from RE52 and RS20 worked to free the single occupant of the car while the EMS units treated the driver of the truck. Trooper 3 was requested to fly the occupant of the car to a trauma center. The occupant of the pick-up truck was treated at a local hospital with minor injuries.

The crash occurred when a car hit a deer in the east bound lanes of RT340. While traffic was stopping, a pickup truck didn't see what was happening, hit the original car and rear-ended the blue car. All occupants are expected to be ok.

I was the driver of the blue car. I want to thank you for saving my life. I am currently home and getting better every day. It's going to be a long road, but I'll make it.
