A Floyd fire truck as well as the new fire station were damaged recently when a former member of the fire department drove the truck into the building.
It is believed the driver, James Middour, 34, was intoxicated on the night of the incident, which took place at 4:22 a.m. on Aug. 24, according a press release from William Baresel, acting Floyd County Attorney.
The Floyd County Sheriff’s Office is completing its investigation and the County Attorney’s Office has not decided if charges are appropriate at this time, the press release stated.
Middour had stepped down from the department before the incident took place, Floyd Fire Chief Ben Chatfield said.
He said Middour drove the ladder truck into the concrete between two of the doors of the new fire station, which was completed last year.
