On Wednesday, October 23rd, the Wamsutter Volunteer Fire Department was working an accident scene of a single vehicle rollover off the north side, westbound Interstate 80 at mile marker 170. The pickup truck involved in that incident had just been towed away and the driver had escaped with minor injuries. At around 8:30 pm, while the Wamsutter Volunteer Firefighters were working around their new Engine 1 to clean up from the scene, a westbound convertible Ford Mustang slid off the highway at highway speeds and rear ended the unoccupied fire engine. However, the five crew members were all standing in close proximately to the fire engine and two of them were impacted by the Mustang, one by the fire engine which was hit with such force it skidded forward several feet striking the firefighter in the process.
