Firemen suffer whiplash after trucks collide

Two fire engines collided as they were driving to the same fire in Kent on 25th October, leaving the firemen involved with whiplash injuries.

Four officers were taken to hospital suffering from whiplash and shock but were later released without any reported bone breaks or fractures.

The road traffic accident took place at 6.30pm in Chatham at Luton Arches when one of the fire engines was forced to break suddenly.

The ladders on top of the vehicle in front plunged through the windscreen of the fire engine behind.

Luckily, nobody received serious personal injuries. The ladder could have punctured part of the driver's or passenger's body in the front seat and caused more serious injuries requiring compensation if they had not moved quickly.

Two further engines were sent to put out the fire and the blaze was contained shortly afterwards.

A full investigation into the collision has since taken place, and the firemen who were taken to hospital with whiplash have now returned to work.
