By Kennett Fire Company No. 1January 19, 2010 On the morning of Tuesday January 19th, the Kennett Fire Company was dispatched to Kaolin Road south of Caldwell Lane for the report of a vehicle accident with entrapment. Deputy 24 arrived on scene to find one vehicle versus a school bus confirming entrapment adding Rescue 23 to the assignment. Chief 24 arrived on scene and established Kaolin Command.

Kennet? Oh my God, it's like old-home for me seeing all these PA articles.

I used to live in between Avondale and West Grove, and was the opening Kitchen Manager when Perkin's opened just west of Avondale. Is it still standing and is it still a Perkins?

Ok, now that the thread highjack is out of the way... Wow, that car was totaled. I'm surprised it wasn't a fatality. Here in Lincoln, NE, we had six storm related deaths Sunday and Monday of this week, due to some whiteout and icy conditions. I killed my local police on the scanner and listened to the county sheriff and the Nebraska State Patrol, and both agencies were hopping both days.

Thanks for letting me know that Kennet is still around.

Happy Scanning

About 1-2 days later one of the local BuxMont school districts had a similar incident with a pickup truck vs a schoolbus. IIRC the truck struck the bus on the driver's side towards the front, and it was a fatal for the pickup driver.
