A crash involving an Atlanta Fire Department fire truck injured four firefighters on Monday morning, authorities said.

The crash happened on Jonesboro Road at McWilliam Road in southeast Atlanta at about 9:30 a.m.

A fire department spokesman said that the truck was responding to a fire on Jonesboro Road when it struck a car and then a tree.

Witnesses said a MARTA bus and several cars stopped on the road. When the fire truck came around the corner, the driver jerked the wheel to avoid the bus and hit a huge oak tree.

Four firefighters were hurt, including one who was trapped in the fire truck.

All four were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The fire truck is a total loss.
