Two people were seriously injured Wednesday evening in a crash in West Brunswick Township. The incident occurred just after 6 p.m. at the intersection of Routes 61 and 895 in the village of Melino. The crash appeared to be head-on.
An officer of the Deer Lake fire company reported to the Schuylkill county communications center he was commandeering a passing medical unit to care for the victims, a Lehighton paramedic unit. The victims were treated at the scene with at least one being transported to a landing zone set up in the parking lot of Cabela’s. State police at Schuylkill Haven are investigating the incident.
