Shortly after lunch time Saturday, members of the New Hope Fire Department along with an EMS unit were dispatched to the scene of an accident involving a passenger car and an an 18-wheeler loaded with hogs on Parkstown Road between the U.S. 70 Bypass and Beston Road. As fire and EMS arrived, they found a passenger car with the driver still inside sitting on the shoulder of the road facing the bypass and the tractor-trailer still in the road facing Beston Road in a sharp curve. Firefighters and EMS personnel safely removed the female driver from her car and transported her to the hospital. The driver of the truck wasn’t injured in the crash and remained on the scene. Firefighters set up traffic control around the crash scene due to the road being blocked by the 18-wheeler. Several State Highway Patrol cruisers arrived on the scene to investigate the accident.
