A distracted truck driver from Connecticut dropped command of an 18-wheeler on Route 222 in Richmond Township on Monday early morning and it ran above the fence of an RV dealership and crashed into a row of journey trailers and a utility pole, police mentioned.
Targeted traffic was detoured for about a half-hour in between Richmaiden and Richmond roadways in the village of Kirbyville just after the rig snapped a utility pole, bringing down lines onto the road in the 14000 block of Kutztown Road, which is Route 222.
Fleetwood law enforcement, who patrol Richmond Township, presented this account:
Paul E. Sipler, 25, of Mansfield was southbound on the freeway south of Route 662 about 8:15 a.m. He took his eyes off the highway to seem down at a GPS map method on an digital unit. The rig traveled on the proper shoulder into a snow pile.
The rig plowed in excess of the pile, ongoing west and the taxi struck the fence of Blue Dog RV, 14035 Kutztown Highway, ahead of continuing into the lot.
The correct entrance of the cab struck a few travel trailers that had been backed against the fence. The still left front of the cab struck a utility pole, snapping it in half.
Fleetwood, Walnuttown and Virginville fireplace businesses responded and helped with visitors command.
Sipler was evaluated by a Everyday living Lion EMS crew but did not want crisis clinical treatment method.
Mark Bodnar, gross sales manager at Blue Doggy RV, mentioned four trailers had been weakened, three of which are a overall decline.
