On Tuesday, August 10th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for a vehicle accident on John J.

Emergency response crew assignments included vehicle stabilization, fluid and debris stabilization, traffic control, assistance with patient stabilization where needed.

It appears that a black Mercedes Benz convertible sedan was traveling east on John J. Williams Highway and a white Chevrolet Tahoe was travel west on John J. Williams Highway attempting to enter the Harris Teeter location and collided with the sedan.  The Mercedes entered the grassy area and walking path causing fluid issue that needed mitigation.   Utility 80-11 was traveling back from a previous medical emergency incident Pot Nets Bayside and came upon the incident alerting the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center. One person was transported for additional observations.
