The North Baltimore Police, Fire and EMS had a busy week last week with a couple of injury accidents, along with the usual incidents of summer and life in small town USA.
Wednesday an accident on I-75 at the Eagleville Road Exit - # 168 - had NB Police, Fire and EMS responding - NBPD Chief Allan Baer's report:
On 06-13-12 at 0749 hrs a possible injury accident was reported to NBPD.
NBPD, NBFD and NB EMS Units responded. The accident occurred on S/B I-75 at Exit 168. Several Vehicles slowed down for debris in the roadway.
NB Emergency Services are regularly called to respond to accidents on the busy interstate 2 miles west of Downtown NB.
Major traffic back-up on the interstate when there is an injury accident. NB does not have a large section of incorporated land along the interstate. They still are often the First Responders.
A vehicle driven by NICOLE CASSLEBERRY (of Oregon, Ohio) struck a vehicle in the rear causing the vehicle operated by TANNY LAMB (of Cincinnati) to veer off the road to the right. CASSELBERRYS vehicle then struck the rear of a vehicle being operated by SUSAN JENKINS (of Fremont, Ohio).
1 occupant was hospitalized in fair condition.
Then Friday, June 15, there was what could have been a very dangerous crash, as a mini-van full of people, hit a Propane Truck, at Poe Road and SR 18.
