FireNews has posted photos from the Salisbury Post  of the Woodleaf Fire Department engine that collided with a car early this morning. Engine 771 was travelling on Woodleaf Road when the 2000 Freightliner pumper reportedly crossed the center line and struck an automobile head-on. The drivers of both vehicles were transported to Rowan Regional Medical Center. Neither appeared to be suffering life-threatening injuries. Read the Salisbury Post story and see additional images. FireNews has also posted photos of last week's ambulance accident, when a Cape Fear Valley Lifelink ambulance left the roadway and struck a parked car at the intersection of I-40 and I-95. Both paramedics were transported, one to Betsy Johnston Hospital in Dunn, and the other with trauma injuries to WakeMed. The car they struck was empty. Read the WRAL story.
