Two Injured When Midtown Volunteer Fire Department (TN) Fire Apparatus Overturns

Two people with the Midtown Volunteer Fire Department suffered minor injuries late Tuesday afternoon when the fire truck they were in ran off the road in Roane County and overturned, according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol report.

Travis May, 19, of Harriman was driving the truck about 5:45 p.m., according to a report. Ty Puckett, 21, or Harriman was a passenger.

Both were taken by ambulance to Roane Medical Center for treatment of injuries thought to be minor.

May was driving a 1986 Chevrolet Pumper Tanker westbound on U.S. Highway 70 when it ran off the road into a grassy area.

May then over-corrected, and the tanker turned over on its top, according to the report.
