BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Three Birmingham firefighters were among five people injured after a fire engine collided with a tree service truck on U.S. 280 at the Interstate 459 South onramp Monday.
Battalion Chief C.W. Mardis says none of the injuries appears life threatening.
He says the injured were complaining of back and neck pain.
Authorities say the fire engine was on an emergency call about 2:30 p.m. when the crash happened.
Mardis says it's unclear what caused the fire engine to run off the embankment at the onramp and a trailer hauled by the tree service truck to overturn.
