PUVFD was activated at 5:45 pm this evening to assist Dryridge VFD with a single vehicle accident on Bailey Farm Road near Green Valley Road on the far western edge of Unity Township. Arriving firefighters located a single vehicle that struck a utility pole then traveled over an embankment striking a tree and came to rest on a hillside off the roadway. The lone occupant of the vehicle was unresponsive and heavily entrapped in the vehicle. It was quickly determined that the occupant suffered fatal injuries and the scene was secured to preserve evidence for investigators. PUVFD firefighters were assigned to a traffic control point on Bailey Farm Road while state police and the coroner completed their investigation. Also assisting Dryridge VFD were units from West Point, Mutual, Marguerite and South Greensburg VFD's. Out of respect to the occupant and his family, no photos will be posted for this incident.
