Early Friday Morning, Company 59 was dispatched to a vehicle accident on PA 283 eastbound. Chief 59 responded immediately and arrived with a three vehicle accident with the road blocked with bundles of hay all over the roadway. A truck had lost control of the vehicle and dumped a load of hay bales onto the roadway causing other vehicles to lose control creating a mess all over PA 283 East.
