A tiller aerial, in service with the Palmer (PA) Municipal Fire Department crashed on the way to the scene of a fire in Easton earlier this week, according to a report published by WFMZ 69 News.

According to the television station, the aerial collided with a small sedan at an intersection while it responded to the double-home fire that displaced seven people. The driver of the sedan sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The report said no firefighters were injured in the crash.

The sedan sustained significant damage to the front of the vehicle, while the fire truck had moderate damage, the report said. Photos of the crash scene appear to show damage to the driver’s side tractor portion of the tiller, including a flat tire.
