FIRE APPARATUS CRASH KILLS 3 CIVILIANS IN MISSOURI
About 17:30 CST time last night (Saturday evening) Engine 11 of the Moreau Fire Protection District in Missouri was returning to quarters from a structure fire when it was involved in a very tragic crash. Engine 11 is a 13 year old custom engine and only had the driver on board. A civilians vehicle crossed the center line on a curve on US 87 north of Eldon, Missouri and hit the fire apparatus head on. The Firefighter who was operating the rig is ok and was wearing his seat beat which kept him from being ejected through the windshield. Tragically there were 3 fatalities in the civilian vehicle which had 7 total passengers.
We will post more on our home page later.
Take Care-BE CAREFUL.
