At 1335 hours Company 95 was dispatched to 145 South Washington Street, Taylor Backes Glass shop for a vehicle into the building with significant structural damage. The building was occupied and there were two people in the vehicle and thankfully nobody was injured. Crews examined the construction of the building and then a plan was made to support the structure so the vehicle could be removed. Para-Tech Struts were deployed along with Aluminum C Channel Waler planks to support the structure until the vehicle was removed and Berks Fire & Water could construct a temporary wood support wall and secure the building.
Company 97 Eastern Berks Fire were dispatched to assist on scene to stand-by for fire suppression until the vehicle was removed just as a precaution.
Eastern Berks Fire and Gilbertsville Fire both assisted with Fire Police operations.
Eastern Berk Regional Police are investigating the crash
