Drunk Volunteer Firefighters Wreck Firetruck

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 30-Aug-2016

Two Tennessee volunteer firefighters are accused of wrecking the firetruck in a drunk driving accident over the weekend. Volunteer firefighters for the city of Vanleer were responding to a fire emergency at a residential home on Saturday morning. The driver of the emergency vehicle lost control and ran the tanker off the road, according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol report.

Details of the report say the driver and another firefighter had been drinking alcohol before they responded to the emergency call. Both men have been suspended and face drunk driving charges. The firetruck never made it to the house fire. Despite another crew on the scene, the house was completely lost to the fire. The accident is still under investigation by the Vanleer police. It was unknown if any of the volunteer firefighters were injured or received medical attention in the accident.

Drunk driving is an epidemic in the United States. It is particularly upsetting when the men and women who are supposed to protect others are found to be the ones causing the harm.
