The News & Observer reports that a Bahama fire truck overturned in Durham last night. The rig rolled on a curve at East Club Boulevard and Glenn Road (see map) just before 10 p.m. Four firefighters were aboard and all were transported for evaluation. The driver suffered broken bones in his hand, the most serious injury. They were each wearing seat belts. WRAL also covered the story, and their photo is below.

I really hope those guys are ok. I’ve seen a custom truck flipped on several occaisions and it’s no fun no matter the circumstances. This just helps me remember that I’ve got to watch myself because we’re no good to anyone if we don’t make it to the scene or back home safe. Speedy recovery to those guys!

I don’t know what the driver’s side looks like, but that cab held up really well. Speedy recovery to the brothers.

The driver side was a lot more banged up than the passenger side. When it rolled over it struck a tree on the driver side. The driver of the truck has a broken arm and a broken bone in his hand, he’ll be out of work for 6-8 weeks. Get well soon Trey.
