The Schertz Fire Department is reminding drivers of the dangers first responders face when responding to scenes after a tractor-trailer struck one of the department’s platform fire trucks at the scene of an accident Wednesday.
The firefighters were responding to the scene near Interstate 35 and FM 1103 at 3 a.m., when the incident occurred. The department’s official Facebook page said the truck was being used to block the scene and protect first responders when a tractor-trailer hit the front of the vehicle.
Photos posted of the accident show the truck’s cab exposed and torn apart by the wreck. No injuries were reported, according to the post.
