Texas Firefighter Injured After Being Pinned Between Two Fire Apparatus

A firefighter was injured after he was pinned between two trucks inside a northwest Harris County fire station., according to authorities.

The incident happened Thursday morning at the Little York Fire Department in the 14000 block of Walters Road. According to the fire department, the firefighter was sitting on the back bumper of a fire truck when a large pickup truck driven by a co-worker pulled into the station garage.

“The firefighters tires were wet when he pulled into the bay so whenever he stopped, the truck came to a small skid before it hit the back of the bumper,” said Deputy Chief Shawn Richardson with the Little York Fire Department.

The firefighter was pinned between the two trucks for a short time before other firefighters rushed in to help.

He was transported via LifeFlight to Memorial Hermann Hospital. We’re told he suffered serious injuries to his chest, but he is expected to be OK.
