Three injured after fire engine overturns near Lowestoft
Three firefighters were taken to hospital after a fire engine responding to a call overturned at a roundabout.
The accident happened on the A12 at Kessingland, near Lowestoft, at just after 8pm on Friday night as the fire engine was heading to an undergrowth blaze at a playing field in Francis Road.
The engine was on its way from nearby Wrentham Fire Station and two engines from Lowestoft South were mobilised, one to attend the original incident and one to help the crew of the overturned unit.
The accident saw part of the A12 closed by police and the engine was eventually righted and removed at about 11pm and the road was cleared of debris.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident and a spokesman for the Suffolk Ambulance Service said three people were taken to James Paget University Hospital, in Gorleston, with nothing more than minor injuries.
