I’ve never seen a video quite like this one. Mike Wilson starts rolling his camera moments after Rescue 1 from Battle Creek, Michigan overturns in front of him on icy roads this (Sunday) afternoon.
Wilson continues to roll as he runs up to offer help. The officer on the rig tells Wilson to back up and then kicks his way through the windshield. The firefighters suffered minor injuries.
Four Battle Creek firefighters suffered minor injuries when their fire engine went out of control and rolled onto its side Sunday.
Battle Creek police reported the accident about 1:15 p.m. on Washington Avenue near Battle Creek Avenue.
All four firefighters were taken to Bronson Battle Creek, but police reported they appeared to have suffered just scrapes and bruises. Police said all four were briefly trapped in the engine.
