At 7:07 pm, Station 2 was dispatched to Panther Drive near North Carroll High School for a vehicle collision involving a farm tractor. Apparently, the tractor was parked, mechanically disabled, partially in the roadway. The driver of a car coming north on Panther Drive did not see the tractor and collided with it. The driver of the car was eventually transported to Carroll Hospital Center. Luckily, there was no one on the tractor at the time of the collision; the tractor driver was returning with straps to tow the tractor home. Crews put down nearly 200 pounds of absorbent on Panther Drive because of all the oil and lubricant that was spilled across the road.
