Lucky To Be Alive After Street Sweeper Collision



Just after midnight, Salisbury Fire Department's Station 2 and 16 were alerted for a motor vehicle accident with rescue, car vs. street sweeper, on the Rt 13 bypass. Upon arrival crews found one person trapped in the car with the passenger walking around the scene. Crews were able to remove the trapped driver after approximately 15 minutes. Both driver and passenger were transported to PRMC for further evaluation. The driver of the street sweeper was not injured.

I have never seen a street sweeper in use on the bypass after dark.

Duh how do you think they travel from one parking lot to another? Levitate?

I was coming off the bypass tuesday night onto 13 at around 8:30pm and saw two street sweepers headed north. One of them was driving rather erratically and nearly ran a red light! This is sad
