Erin (TN) Fire Apparatus Crashes on Fire Call

An Erin deputy fire chief escaped injury after the fire truck he was driving crashed into a ditch en route to a house fire.

Erin Fire Chief Danny Warren said trucks from the Erin Fire Department responded to a mutual aid call from the Houston County Fire Department just after 1 p.m. and Deputy Chief Brad Hindman was driving Engine 3, EFD’s front-line response truck.

“The right back tires got off the road and went into the ditch because there is no shoulder on that side,” Warren said. “It traveled about 75 feet in the ditch before coming to rest on its side.”

The chief said Hindman was the only firefighter in the truck, and he was not injured in the crash.

Warren said the truck appears to be a total loss. The department has a back-up fire truck that will now move up as the primary response truck.
