FIRE TRUCK OVERTURNS EN ROUTE TO STRUCTURE FIRE – GEORGIA

An Elbert County fire truck overturned in route to a structure fire call on Pearl Mill Road earlier this afternoon. The truck, driven by firefighter John Luna, 75, was traveling on Harpers Ferry Road in response to a structure fire on Peal Mill Road around 3:28 p.m.
Just before 3:42 p.m., Elbert County Fire Chief Rick Mewborn said the truck’s right front and back wheels ran slightly off the side of the road, came back onto the pavement and started sliding from the back end. The truck was pushed to the opposite side of the road before flipping back onto its right side.
Mewborn said Luna reported the wreck himself and was transported to Elbert Memorial HosPital and has sustained minor injuries.
Mewborn said Harpers Ferry Road should be close to being reopened, if it is not reopened already.
