On-Scene Victor (MT) Fire and EMS Truck Totaled; Four Sent to Hospital, Incl. Two Firefighters

Nobody was killed, though four people were taken to the hospital.

A truck traveling through smoke and fog in an emergency scene on Highway 93 Saturday morning hit and totaled a Victor (MT) Fire and EMS structure engine.

Nobody was killed, though a report on nbcmontana.com says four people—including two firefighters—were taken to the hospital; two passengers in the truck suffered unknown injuries and a male and female firefighter had minor injuries—all were treated and released.

The accident happened two miles north of Victor and north of Bell Crossing at about 7:30 a.m., the report says. Firefighters were on the scene because someone was burning a nearby field and the smoke moved to the highway; fog also hurt visibility.

A 50-foot tire mark could be seen from the truck that hit the apparatus, the report says. Officials say driving at 10 miles per hour would be too fast for the conditions, though vehicles were traveling at speeds upwards of 60mph.
