Cuba Fire Department responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident at the three mile marker on I 20-59.  Cuba units were assisted by Siloam and Ward units at the scene as well as Northstar ambulance.   Chief Vaughan arrived on scene to find a car hauler and a camper involved in a collision that resulted in the complete destruction of the camper trailer and extensive damage to the car hauler and portions of its cargo.  Thankfully there were no injuries at the scene and both parties involved were able to collect their belongings and leave on their own two legs.  South Sumter firefighters had to stay on scene for nearly four hours due to the debris closing all but the emergency lane on the interstate.  The experts from Simmons Wrecker arrived on the scene to clean up the mess and the highway was officially opened for business again around 0200 on Sunday morning.  Never fails that we have an interesting weekend in our little corner of the world…
