Four Copper Mountain firefighters are lucky they were not injured after a semi-truck slammed into their fire truck along Interstate 70.
Sam Parker with the Copper Mountain Metropolitan District says the Copper Mountain Fire Department responds to many wrecks along I-70. Earlier this week, they were on the interstate near Vail Pass parking their fire truck behind a state trooper who was responding to a crash.
Suddenly, a tanker truck lost control and slammed into the fire truck with four firefighters inside.
Firefighters said that had the truck not been there, the state trooper responding to the wreck and the tow-truck driver may have been hit by that semi-truck.
