Augusta, GA (January 16, 2023) – Around 4:27 p.m. on the afternoon of Monday, January 16, a firetruck rollover accident led to injuries in Augusta.
According to officials, the accident took place in the westbound lanes of I-20 around the area of Washington Road. Fire crews were allegedly responding to a commercial fire in the area when the driver lost control, causing the firetruck to roll over. The accident led to debris and severe damages to the truck.
Several local responders, including Augusta fire crews and paramedics, were called to the scene to help those in need. Three individuals inside the truck, who have not yet been formally identified, sustained injuries in the accident. The parties are all expected to recover.
Due to the severity of the collision, a large portion of the road was blocked in the area. This led to delays for some time until police fully cleared the scene.
The investigation into the circumstances leading up to the accident continues at this time.
We offer our warmest thoughts and prayers to those injured in this accident with hopes of a full recovery.
