On 1/18/19, the Verona Volunteer Fire Department responded with the Verona Police Department and Verona Rescue Squad to the area of 16 Bloomfield Avenue for a reported motor vehicle accident with a utility pole down.

Upon arrival, VFD members found a single occupied vehicle crash where the vehicle had lost control and went off the roadway striking a utility pole and several parked vehicles in the lot of a local business. VFD members made the scene safe due to utility wires being down, secured the involved vehicles, and assisted the Verona Rescue Squad with patient care of the driver who was subsequently transported to a local hospital. VFD units remained on scene for approximately 90 minutes before returning to service after PSE&G arrived to secure the power wires.
