Three firefighters were injured in a crash Wednesday afternoon.
The Oregon Department of Forestry said one of their crews was involved in a crash on Redwood Highway (Highway 101) near Hayes Hill in Josephine County.
“Three of our firefighters were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries,” and ODF spokesperson said, “and thankfully, all are expected to be okay.”
Rural Metro Fire said the crash was believed to have been caused by a compact car that crossed the median, striking the ODF pickup truck.
The driver of the compact car was reportedly cited for failing to stay in their lane of travel.
