DENTON, TX – Two people were hospitalized following a crash that involved a semi-truck and two fire engines on August 2, according to CBS DFW.
Two firetrucks, Engine 4 and Quint 5, were at the section of southbound I-35 responding to a grass fire when they were both struck by a semi-truck.
The semi-truck collided first with Engine 4, slamming into its driver’s side door, and then the force of the impact pushed the semi into Quint 5’s front bumper. The semi-truck was then bounced from the bumper into the grass median where it then rolled over on the driver’s side.
First responders extracted the driver from the semi-truck and hospitalized him with severe head injuries.
A firefighter who was in the driver’s seat of Engine 4 when it was struck by the semi-truck was also hospitalized. They suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Following the collision, Fuel was spilled to the roadway from the semi-truck. This closed the area down for several hours.
