A messy drive.

At approximately 3:30 the company was alerted for 2 separate calls regarding wires and trees down in the roadway. The first call was quickly handled however the second call, at Rt 41 and Starr Road would prove more challenging.

With a tree and wires across Rt 41, traffic in both directions needed to be rerouted for an extended period of time. With heavy trucking and "rush hour" traffic this proved to put a limit on our resources. A fire police task force was requested by command which pulled in assistance from many neighboring departments.

To complicate matters, south bound traffic that was being sent south on Newark road needed to also be detoured as a truck navigating a tight turn put its trailer into a deep ditch and required a heavy duty tow truck to remove it.

Understandably frustrated drivers quickly were finding all common routes South and North between Delaware and Landenberg/Avondale blocked and detoured.

A second alarm fire police task force was dispatched as additional manpower was needed.

At approximately 7pm PennDot, Verizon, and PECO were able to clear the roadway. All unit cleared the scene and all roads were reopened by 7:30.

Units: Deputy, Traffic, Squad, Engine 1, TSB.
