Recently, Budd Lake Fire Cars 50 and 52, and Rescue 55 were responding to the top of a mountain by Paragon Village where a truck was reported hanging over the guard rail. Rescue 55 used chains to secure the truck to the guardrail, to allow the driver to exit the vehicle. The Budd Lake EMS crew transported the person to Morristown Hospital with non-life threating injuries. A power pole was taken down by the accident and the highway was closed for several hours while the power company worked.
