Dangerous Job

This is a post from It's dangerous for us long before we get to the emergency.

A Spring Volunteer Fire Department truck and van collided in far northwest Harris County this afternoon, sending three people to the hospital. The wreck occurred about 12:30 p.m. The van's driver was trapped inside his cab and workers are trying to get him out.

The fire truck, which was headed eastbound on FM 2920 in response to a motorcycle wreck, overturned. Two firefighters and the van's driver were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies have closed FM 2920 in both directions near the crash site as workers clear the area. An unknown substance spilled from the van in the crash and crews were cleaning it up.

People in the immediate area were evacuated as a precaution because of possible danger from the chemical.

The apparatus was on an emergency call with its siren on and lights flashing when the crash happened.
