Six Clayton County (GA) Firefighters Hurt in Fire Apparatus Accident

Authorities report that six firefighters were hurt when their fire truck and a semitrailer collided just south of Atlanta (GA).

Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright says the wreck happened at an intersection in Forest Park around 7 p.m. Tuesday while the Clayton County firefighters were responding to a call.

Wright said the fire truck, with lights and sirens activated, was traveling southbound on Old Dixie Highway when it approached the rear of a semi that was also southbound. Investigators say that as the semi was attempting to turn left onto Central Avenue, it struck the fire truck.

One of the injured firefighters was flown by helicopter to Atlanta Medical Center. Wright said the others were taken by ambulance.
