One Injured When Auto Damages Home

An auto into a house in St. Thomas Fire Department's first due area at 1911 Criders Church Road sent Ambulance 1-7 to the scene shortly after 10 a.m. Crews arrived to find one auto backed into a single family home that caused injury to the homeowner inside. With multiple helicopters descending on the Chambersburg area due to medical transports, Life Lion was obligated to land at Andrew Buchannan Elementary school. Engine 1-4 established the landing zone for the trauma patient and cleared around 11 a.m.
