Fire truck crushes classic car in Evergreen
EVERGREEN, Colorado- An Evergreen, Colorado firefighter has been released from a hospital after the fire truck he was driving rolled down an embankment and smashed a classic car parked in a driveway.
The firefighter suffered a bruised shoulder when the accident occurred Tuesday. His name wasn’t released.
The firefighter had moved the truck over to the far right side of the road to let an oncoming vehicle pass, but Sgt. Sean Wheeler says the dirt shoulder gave way and the truck toppled downhill.
It stopped after crushing a 1969 Firebird that its owner had been restoring for 30 years.
Car owner Bill Vickery says it’s not clear if the car can be repaired. The roof was flattened, its body damaged and glass shattered.
The fire truck may be out of service for four months.
