Vehicle crashes through garage and several rooms of home near Pine Grove
Pine Grove, SC (Paul Kirby) – A vehicle has crashed through the garage of a home, continued through several rooms, and come to rest against its rear wall Sunday morning. This occurred in the 200 block of Megan Lane off Emanuel Church Road between Pine Grove, Oak Grove, and Lexington in the Gleneagle subdivision. Multiple units from the Lexington County Fire Service and EMS were dispatched at approximately 9:30 a.m.
The first fire units arrived within minutes and quickly began to assess the situation. They reported that some structural elements of the home, parts that aren’t necessary cosmetic but could actually support the home’s roof and other walls, might be damaged. The fire service has specially equipped trucks that carry timbers, saws, and other equipment that will allow them to support the structure to prevent it from collapsing while they work. This also allows them to safely remove anyone injured from the vehicle. Currently they have also requested SCE&G’s electric and gas divisions to come and secure the utilities.
