02/12/12 123 W, 1 I - + 9 - 6 Friday's Apparatus Accident in Surry County

Two members of the Mountain Park Volunteer Fire Department in Surry County were injured early Friday evening, when their 1995 Freightliner tanker overturned on Zephyr Mountain Road. They were responding to a fire when the accident occurred on the narrow road. The driver reportedly lost control of the truck due to shifting water after breaking. The truck left the roadway, tipped on its side, and slid down a hill and over a narrow bridge. The two firefighters aboard were transported to Wake Forest Baptist Hospital. They were treated for non-life threatening injuries. Both were wearing seatbelts. Read more in this digitriad.com story, which has also been posted to FireNews.net.


Notice that the best part of this was that they were treated for non-life threatening injuries due to the fact that they were wearing seat belts!! I am glad to hear that everyone is alive.
