PHOTOS: Four Davidson and Randolph County firetrucks were damaged in three separate accidents over the weekend.
The Westside Volunteer Fire Department in Asheboro responded to a multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 73/74 northbound near Vision Drive on Friday night. At around 9:30 or 10 p.m., a vehicle hit their firetruck in the back, said Chief Racil Williamson.
No one was injured in the accident, but the truck is out of commission, Williamson said.
The Linwood Rural Fire Department in Davidson County responded to a two-vehicle collision on Interstate 85 south near mile marker 86 early Friday morning. They were using the firetruck to block the left lane, and at around 5:30 a.m, a car struck their truck.
The back right corner of the fire truck was damaged, and the truck is unusable, said Linwood Fire Chief Terry Leonard.
