Daviess County (KY) Fire Apparatus Overturns While Responding to Fire

Emergency crews responded to the scene of an apparent accident involving a fire truck in Daviess County, Kentucky.

The fire truck overturned on its way to a fire near Owensboro. Lakeside Green is a narrow private drive with steep ditches on both sides.

When the driver tried to miss an overgrown tree limb the truck went off the side of the road and flipped.

It took crews more than two hours to flip the fire truck back over and pull it out of the ditch.

The Daviess County Fire Chief Dwane Smeathers says the passenger of the fire truck was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
