Dallas Fire Rescue’s Truck 34 sustained significant damage in an overnight collision on LBJ Freeway.
Officials say the firetruck was blocking lanes of LBJ Freeway near St. Augustine Street while other crews were working a crash. They had been on scene around 15 minutes when a speeding vehicle crashed into the side of their truck, causing major damage.
All four members of the crew were inside of the cab at the time of the crash. Luckily, they were uninjured.
The firefighters immediately exited the cab and deployed their extrication tools to cut out both occupants of the vehicle that impacted their truck.
The man and woman inside the pickup truck were transported to a local hospital with injuries.
It is common protocol for departments to utilize apparatus to block scenes on the highway, precisely for this very reason. The blocking apparatus will serve as a protective barrier to stop any impaired, speeding, or distracted drivers from crashing into the scene.
