HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Four Henrico firefighters were taken to the hospital with injuries described as non-life-threatening after their firetruck overturned on the way to an emergency call Sunday morning.
"[The fire truck] was traveling north on Woodman Road responding to a call for an unconscious person when it spun on the road, traveled off the paved roadway, and overturned," a Henrico Fire spokesperson wrote in an email about the crash. "Conditions of the roads were snow-covered and very slippery. No other vehicles were involved in the accident."
The truck was from the Lakeside Fire House and the crash was reported at about 7:20 a.m. near the intersection of Woodman Road and Spider Drive, not far from Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
The roadway was closed for investigation and crash cleanup.
"All four firefighters were able to exit the apparatus by themselves," the email continued. "The initial medical emergency was handled by other units responding at the same time. There was no delay in service."
Henrico Fire urged drivers to delay travel Sunday and allow crews to clear snow off the roads.
