At 18:30 hours, the Avondale Fire Company was dispatched to the 1530 block of Baltimore Pike in New Garden Township for an auto accident with reports of a vehicle versus a house porch.

Due to an in-house duty crew, Rescue 23 went responding just after dispatch with a crew of 5 personnel. Ambulance 23-1, Deputy and Chief 23 responded just after. Ambulance 23-1 and Rescue 23 both arrived to find a Jeep SUV partially into a front porch and fortunately the driver was not injured. Further investigation found no damage to the structural integrity of the house. Engine 23-1 also responded and provided traffic control. Fire Police officers provided traffic control at the scene by closing Baltimore Pike at Reese Street and Newark Road.

Crews awaited Blittersdorf's towing to remove the vehicle from the porch.
