Due to a traffic accident, the L394 between Enkenbach-Alsenborn and Neuhemsbach is closed at 1.30 pm. A firefighting vehicle from the local fire brigade has turned over to a mission on the journey. The rescue service is on site with several vehicles. The helicopter is also in use.
The accident happened shortly before 12 o’clock. According to current findings, the fire engine of the fire brigade Enkenbach-Alsenborn was on its way to Neuhemsbach. From there, a fireplace had been reported in a house.
On the way, the fire brigade came across a small truck that drove towards Alsenborn. In order to get past each other without being touched, the driver of the fire-fighting vehicle turned slightly to the right, according to his own statements. He came with the wheels on the right side to the unrestrained banquet. In an attempt to bring the fire truck back to the road, the driver lost control of the vehicle – the fire engine overshooted and remained transversely (partially on the road, partly in the adjacent green tire).
All five inmates – all the firefighters of the fire brigade – were injured in the accident. According to actual information, they came away with minor injuries. They were taken to the hospital for further examinations as a precautionary measure.
The driver of the small truck, who had encountered the fire-fighting vehicle, continued his journey. He is searched for.
Witnesses who can provide information on the small truck (license plate, model, color, other direction of travel) are kindly asked to get in touch with the Police Inspectorate 1 in Kaiserslautern, phone 0631 / 369-221.
A towing service with a crane is required for the salvage of the fire engine on the side. The blocking of the L394 is expected to continue for several hours.
