A Sanford (ME) firefighter had to jump out of the way as a car went out of control and hit a fire truck blocking a previous accident scene recently, according to a report published by WGME 13.

According to the television station, the damaged fire truck was being used to block off a street at an accident scene where Sanford firefighters were working. As firefighters were clearing the scene, a vehicle headed right at them, narrowly missing a firefighter who had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit, the station reported.

The fire truck suffered front-end damage that will need to be repaired, but the driver of the other vehicle suffered only minor injuries and was soon released after being checked out at a hospital, the television station reported.

The crash gave the Sanford fire chief a reason to remind motorists to stay alert while driving and not use their phones or be distracted by other activities, like eating and drinking, the station reported.
