Outerbridge Crossing - SI bound

Overturned car midspan on the bridge

PAPD handling it, FDNY staging at base of the bridge (E151, TL76)

*I often wondered how FDNY responds to inter-state bridges, serious MVAs on the Outerbridge Crossing, Goethals Bridge and Bayonne Bridges are rare* Would be a sight to see 151/76 turning around in Perth Amboy, NJ.

*2nd overturned vehicle in 20 mins for the 23 Batt, previously operating with E162/L82 at MVA w/ Overturn Box 3834*

It would be interesting and pretty sure at some point they have done it.
PAPD does have a wrecker with some fire suppression ability at each crossing. Think at OBX it’s a new Volvo 10 wheel heavy duty wrecker. They used to have the small Mack trucks like at the tunnels.
