From my sources, four firefighters were injured when their apparatus rolled over in Bedford today. All four were transported to area hospitals by ground or air. Bedford FD Engine 1 is a 2007 Seagrave Marauder II. Being close to the area, we have guys on our department who volunteer in Bedford. Their Chief Creasy is a firefighter in Roanoke City. Two of the firefighters involved (Chauffeur and Officer) are also paid firefighters at the Roanoke Regional Airport. I have been told by sources that none of the firefighters sustained life threatening injuries.
I will update with more information as it is available.
