Collision with fire truck sends Coatesville woman to hospital


COATESVILLE A 29-year-old Coatesville woman was sent to a hospital Monday morning with back pain after her Jeep swerved into the side of a fire truck on its way to an apartment fire.

Erin Griffy of the 100 block of Harlan Drive was traveling eastbound in her 2012 Jeep Patriot on Lincoln Highway at around 10:30 a.m. when a fire truck came up behind her with its lights and sirens on, police said. Griffy, who was traveling alone, switched lanes to get out of the way but, for unknown reasons, swerved back into the front passenger side of the truck as it passed, police said.

As of Monday afternoon, the police had not been able to question Griffy and did not know her condition or which hospital examined her.

The crash occurred near the 600 block of Lincoln Highway, police said.

The Sadsburyville Fire Company truck was one of several responding to a low level fire in a room of an apartment building on Pennsylvania Avenue, police said. Firefighters quickly put the fire out. No injuries were reported.
