08/03/09 100 W, 1 I - + 10 - 8 Thursday's Apparatus Accident in Charlotte

Charlotte Engine 25 was struck by a car on Thursday night at the intersection of Pleasant Grove Road and Hutchinson Lane. The engine was responding to a call, with lights and siren. The two occupants of the colliding vehicle were transported with non-life threatening injuries. No firefighters were hurt. The incident occurred at 8:58 p.m. WBTV has a short video report. Details were also posted by CFD on Twitter. Didn't see any coverage of the incident on Thursday, but some digging days later found the TV and twitter content.

The CFD Twitter site or the Google Alert group are your best bets for accurate/up-to-date information about incidents that CFD is handling. That information is pushed out by our 2 PIOs and 4 of us in Alarm (communications).
