WAYNE, PA - On Saturday, November 27th at 6:07 a.m., Radnor Fire Company was dispatched to assist the Broomall Fire Company with a motor vehicle collision with injury, reported to be an overturned gasoline tanker in the area of Interstate 476 and West Chester Pike in Marple Township.

Chief 15, Squad 15 and Engine 15 responded to the southbound on ramp to 476 from westbound West Chester Pike. The 8,600 gallon tanker had rolled over onto its side and was leaking gasoline onto the ground which flowed into a nearby storm inlet.

Chief 15 coordinated with Broomall Command and responded to a collection point where water run off from the Blue Route occurs. An odor of gasoline was noted at that location and Command was notified for the Hazardous Materials Team to mitigate. The crew from Squad 15 manned one of two hose lines that were deployed at the tanker as a precaution, while the crew from Engine 15 stood by at a hydrant on West Chester Pike in the event that a water supply was needed.

The Delaware County 9-1-1 Center dispatched the Hazardous Materials Team who arrived and coordinated the mitigation procedures, including air monitoring, placing booms in strategic locations and working with the environmental company who offloaded the product from the truck before tow trucks could remove it.

The tanker operator was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Crews remained on location until after 11:00 a.m. when another fire company was dispatched to take over for the Radnor units.
