Two Firefighters Injured When Roane County (WV) Fire Apparatus Overturns

Two Roane County volunteer firefighters were injured when their fire truck overturned on a rural road.

Delmas Walker, chief of the Gandeeville-Harmony Volunteer Fire Department, said he was driving with another firefighter along Harmony Road at about 7:25 a.m. when he was run off the road by a small car.

Walker said the fire engine ended up on its top in the roadway, “rubber side up and sunny side down.”

Both Walker and the other firefighter received minor injuries in the accident, but were treated and released from the hospital by mid-morning.
Walker said the fire department has five trucks, but lost its only engine in the crash. He doesn’t yet know if the vehicle can be repaired.
