A typical Dallas pumper truck


A Dallas firefighter was injured when a pumper rolled over Friday night.

The apparatus was responding to a structure fire when the crash occurred near West Ledbetter and Parkwood around 7:30, according to a Dallas Fire Rescue official.

A photo posted on shows that the pumper came to rest on the driver's side on the shoulder of the road.

The firefighter suffered non-life threatening injuries and is listed in stable condition.

Quite a few accidents like that occur are committed by speeding fire trucks, fire engines, and responding firefighters on their private vehicles.  They have killed quite a few people and caused a lot of property damage.  Always stay clear of the fire trucks, as they will not always pay attention to other drivers on the road.
