Firefighters take quite a lot of satisfaction in washing and sharpening their autos, not wrecking them. However a South Carolina volunteer firefighter has been charged with driving underneath the affect after he managed to flip his neighborhood’s fireplace truck.

That is the sort of factor normally attributed to Florida man — however South Carolina is barely a state away.

The crash occurred in tiny Starr, S.C., a crossroads south of Greenville close to the Savannah River. Starr’s inhabitants is underneath 200, so that is in all probability the most important factor to happen there in years. In keeping with Fox Carolina, the firefighter was responding to a name — though the Related Press and different South Carolina retailers say that is unclear. The South Carolina Freeway Patrol says there was one different individual aboard the hearth engine when it ran off the street, hit a culvert and freeway signal, and overturned.

A neighbor informed WSPA-TV the crash occurred on a stretch of street the place rushing is an issue, and from the wreckage it seems to be like pace was an element.

Troopers say the motive force was handled for minor accidents and was jailed. However no different accidents had been reported.

The fireplace truck, nonetheless, was totaled. And small cities being what they’re, the motive force could also be a very long time residing it down.
