Vehicle crash that led to heavy smoke around area sends one to hospital
NORFOLK, Neb. --A northeast Nebraska fire department was kept busy on Saturday morning responding to a crash.
The Norfolk Fire and Rescue were called to 2100 Pasewalk Avenue for a report of smoke near a bank.
Upon arrival, smoke could be seen coming near the Madison County Bank near Hy-Vee.
Norfolk Fire Captain Landon Grothe said that a car crashed into an embankment near the bank which caused the tires of the car to keep spinning while letting out smoke over the area.
The smoke coming from the tires made it seem like the bank was on fire to some witnesses.
He also said the crash was due to a medical emergency.
The driver had to be assisted out of the car by first responders and was transported to a local hospital.
Grothe added multiple people that work in the bank were treated on the scene for smoke inhalation.
