Fall River, Ma. Around 7:30 in the morning companies were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident involving a pick up truck and a utility pole.
After monitoring the dispatch the District Chief on duty called for a full still alarm response because of the report of wires down and a gas meter severed. When arriving on scene members had to immediately evacuate surrounding homes as the truck had sheared off the utility pole and came to rest on the gas service meter of the house next door.
