APPARATUS ROLLOVER IN TX

A fire engine was knocked onto its right side in a traffic accident at about 1 p.m. Monday, the fire department said.

The accident happened at the intersection of Randol Mill Road and Handley-Ederville Road, fire Capt. Kyle Falkner said.

Four firefighters on the engine and the driver of the pickup truck that collided with the engine suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to area hospitals, Falkner said.

The truck was responding to a minor structure fire that another unit was able to extinguish without help, Falkner said.

It was turning in the intersection when a pickup entered the intersection at the same time, Falkner said. The fire engine’s driver tried unsuccessfully to swerve and avoid the collision, causing the engine to overturn.

Fort Worth police are investigating, Falkner said.
