Rescue truck involved in wreck
First responders were on the scene of several vehicle accidents on Friday morning, with at least three reported, one east of town, one south of town and one west of town. Most of the accidents did not require patient transports and no serious injuries were reported. One of the Sweetwater Fire Department’s rescue trucks was hit from behind by an 18-wheeler that was jack knifing. Both members of SFD that were in the rescue vehicle have been released from the hospital. Shown is the wrecked truck, showing the compartment that stored the hydraulic spreaders, also known as the Jaws of Life.
