Harrison Township (OH) Fire and EMS Apparatus Involved in Crash

The rear wheels of the fire apparatus were off the pavement when tow crews arrived.

Two OH firefighters avoided injury early Saturday morning when their apparatus was involved in a crash tied to a drunk driver, reports sciotovalleyguardian.com.

Around 1:15 a.m. Saturday in Londonderry, Harrison Township Fire and EMS crews were responding to a separate crash on Route 50 at Vigo Road, the report says. The engine then collided with a Buick near the scene; no injuries were reported in either accident.

The rear wheels of the fire apparatus were off the pavement when tow crews arrived, the report says, and the driver of the Buick was cited for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Fire officials say the truck will be out-of-service for an extended period of time, but the department has a backup engine that can step in.

The woman in the first crash was given a sobriety test after police officials say she slammed her SUV into a concrete barrier. She was taken to county jail for further testing and charged with driving under the influence, according to the report.
