CHICKASAW, Ala. — An Alabama fire truck was severely damaged after being struck by a pickup truck while blocking off a crash scene. 

The Chickasaw Fire Department truck was blocking two lanes and officers were diverting traffic when the crash occurred Friday night, according to FOX10.

“The fire truck was parked east and west and the gentleman was in the middle lane and he hit the fire truck,” said Chickasaw Police Captain Tommy McDuffie. 

The driver of the pickup truck was injured and in critical condition, according to McDuffie. 

The truck was severely damaged in the crash, leaving Chickasaw with only one working truck.

“A city our size, when a fire truck goes down, that’s going to hurt us responding,” said McDuffie.

 

Please use caution when driving. Our truck was struck on the interstate while police and fire were working another accident.
