Chesapeake firefighter pinned when car rolls off tow truck

A firefighter was rushed to a local hospital Friday evening, after a car rolled off a tow truck and pinned him against a house.

The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Atlantic Avenue, in the South Norfolk section. Fire crews originally responded to a call for a car into a house at that location. The fire department told 13News that the driver of a white Audi lost control and slammed into the house.

As the car was loaded onto a tow truck, it broke loose and pinned the firefighter against the house. Crews rushed him to the hospital with minor injuries.

No one else suffered any injuries, and no one was home at the time. The cause of the initial crash remains under investigation.
