PHOTOS: A Shawnee fire truck is heavily damaged after a car crashed through a garage door at the John B. Glaser Fire Station, 6501 Quivira Road, early Thursday morning.
Shawnee Deputy Fire Chief Corey Sands says that one of the station’s two fire crews was out on an emergency medical call around midnight, when the second fire crew back at the station awoke to a loud sound and found a car had crashed through a garage door and into the front of their parked truck.
Firefighters went to work extricating the injured driver from his heavily damaged car. Sands says the man was alert and talking at the scene.
Johnson County Med-Act transported the man to Overland Park Regional Medical Center with what Sands described as “serious injuries.”
