The tables were turned for local firefighters Sunday who had to have their truck rescued after an accident.
Officials say a Summersville Fire Department truck pulled into a parking lot to turn around during a funeral procession in Greensburg, Kentucky.
When the truck made the turn, it fell through the basement of an auto parts store.
The parking lot was built over a former service station which is connected to the store.
Green County received an estimated 4 inches of rain Saturday night. Officials say the accident was non-rain related.
There were no injuries.
A red fire engine overturned this afternoon just north of Springfield city limit.
Two people who were inside the Ebenezer Fire truck suffered minor injuries, said Heath Dalton, assistant fire chief.
A third person in the truck was not injured, Dalton said.
No other vehicles were involved.
Dalton said the truck and crew were returning to the station from a car crash in Polk County.
He declined to comment on a cause of the rollover.
The accident happened about 5 p.m. on Greene County WW east of Missouri 13, according to Ozarks Traffic.
Fire Rescue and other county departments began working at 7:30 a.m. Thursday to make a clay shoulder around the truck so it could be towed, Walters said. Muck trucks and dump trucks went back and forth on the road at a slow pace so they wouldn’t also fall off the road.
Walters said the workers were trying to pull it out without damaging the truck or the surrounding wetlands.
“It’s a painstaking process,” he said.
It took about 10 hours, but the effort succeeded at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, he said.
Two central Kentucky firefighters are still hospitalized a day after they were shocked by a power line while helping out with an “ice bucket challenge.”
Campbellsville Fire Capt. Tony Grider was in critical condition in the University of Louisville Medical Center’s burn unit Friday afternoon, a hospital spokesman said. Simon Quinn was in fair condition there.
Both men were on the fire truck’s ladder when it got too close to a power line after dumping water on Campbellsville University’s marching band on Thursday in the charity stunt to raise awareness for the disease ALS.
Campbellsville Fire Chief Kyle Smith told WDRB-TV (http://bit.ly/1winyCW) on Friday that Grider suffered burns on 55 percent of his body and was sedated.
Two other firefighters were hurt, but they are out of the hospital.
Campbellsville Police Chief Tim Hazlette said the power line was never touched Thursday morning, but it carried such a high voltage that it was able to energize the ladder truck, shocking the firefighters.
Most of the students had already left the area and no students were hurt.
University nursing student Julie Smith said she was nearby and spoke to a couple of friends who saw the firefighters being shocked and said “they are taking it really hard.”
“It’s tragic, I feel for all the band members who were still there when it happened, that they had to see that,” Smith said. Smith later led a prayer vigil with about 100 people on the campus Thursday night.
Taylor County Judge-Executive Eddie Rogers said Friday that the community was still reeling from the accident.
“We never know when something like this is going to happen,” he said. “Everybody’s heartbroken over it.”
Power was knocked out for about an hour to 4,500 customers, including the school, said Natasha Collins, a spokeswoman for Kentucky Utilities, which owns the line.
The ice bucket challenge has been sweeping social media websites. The ALS Association said it has raised more than $41 million.
Firefighter Keith Bricken, who has worked with Grider for about three years, said he was a tough firefighter who trained colleagues.
“He’s real outgoing. He loves to help in any way he can,” Bricken said.
Grider, 41, is a 16-year veteran of the department. Quinn, 22, is a part-time firefighter.
Also injured was Capt. Steve Marrs, 37, who has been with the department for 11 years, and Alex Johnson, 28, who has been there three years.
Campbellsville University, a private college, is a Christian institution that has about 3,600 students, according to its website. It is about 65 miles south of Louisville.
