GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) - Two firefighters making an emergency run
were shaken but unhurt when their fire truck slid off a road and
overturned.
Jason Miller and Lt. Alan Peery were responding to an ambulance
call in the ladder truck about 7 p.m. Tuesday to assist paramedics
on the call.
As Miller drove down a rain-slick county road, one of the
truck's wheels, and then truck itself, slid off the narrow shoulder
into a ditch.
The truck then overturned, hitting a tree and damaging a fence.
"We're just so blessed nobody got hurt," said Goshen Fire
Chief John Alheim.
The truck, which the department bought two years ago, is
insured.
