Firefighter Suffers Minor Injuries After Crash Involving Car, Fire Truck


A Jackson Township fire truck was involved in a crash on Friday while responding to another crash.

According to the fire chief, a firefighter suffered minor arm injuries in the crash.

The chief said that a driver going 60 miles per hour could not stop in time and crashed into the fire truck.

“The message I want to get across is in weather like this, or anytime you see flashing lights, you need to slow down and pay attention to what’s around you,” Chief Lloyd Sheets said.

10TV News spoke with Sheets last week, because he was concerned about a series of crashes involving fire trucks and medics.

At the time of that story, Sheets said that 12 incidents cost the township between $50,000 and $60,000.
