BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Four firefighters are out of the hospital after a fire truck overturned Friday afternoon in the City of Buffalo.

The truck flipped on its side at Rockwood and Fillmore Avenue, near Main Street just before 4:30 a.m.

A Buffalo Fire spokesperson told News 4 the truck was responding to a call and turned left onto Fillmore when a regular vehicle turned in front of the truck. Trying to avoid the vehicle, firefighters swerved out of the way, fishtailed and the truck flipped on its side. The truck had its lights and sirens on.

Four firefighters are at Erie County Medical Center for treatment Friday.

The vehicle that pulled in front of the truck wasn’t hit, but there was big damage to the firetruck.

No charges have been filed.
