Fire Truck Crash Injures Four Firefighters
South Carolina - Four firefighters were injured Thursday when a fire truck crashed on the way to help another crew battle a burning home, Horry County fire department spokesman Todd Cartner said. Two other firefighters battling the house fire also suffered minor injuries. All six were taken to the hospital, but Cartner wouldn't release their conditions.
Two firefighters involved in the crash were flown to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, and a third was to be taken there, Cartner said. The other firefighters were at a local hospital.
Some firefighters were "treated and released" at Loris Community Hospital, spokeswoman Christy Allsbrick said. She would not release the firefighters names or say how many were admitted to the hospital.
