A Roxanna fire truck was struck on Interstate 255 Thursday as first responders tended to a separate emergency on the interstate.
“We place our vehicle in that position to protect us from exactly what happened today,” said Roxanna Fire Chief Daryl Trask.
He said traffic on I-255 was down to one lane while they helped someone with a medical emergency. That’s when a driver smashed into the back of their fire truck. Four to five firefighters were on the scene at the time, as well as several police officers and two paramedics.
“Our main concern was for the people involved,” Trask said. “Our people weren’t injured and obviously the victim that did strike us, we hope he’s all right. We’re praying and thinking about him.”
