On August 5th @ 11:20 the GFC, along with Mt. Pleasant Rescue 30, Leesport Rescue 37, Temple Rescue 11, and Northern Berks Emergency Medical Services were dispatched to an MVA with injuries in the 1300 block of Cross Keys Road.
Upon arrival crews found that a Honda sedan, a Ford Explorer, and a Hundai sedan were involved in a 3 vehicle chain reaction rear end collision. One occupant was complaining of neck pain, but refused transport.

Once the vehicles were removed traffic was returned to normal flow.
