Fire Engine Crashes After Tire Explodes

A firefighter was hospitalized after a fire engine tire “exploded,” leading to a crash in Eastern North Carolina, officials said. The truck was leaving a Christmas parade when it became “uncontrollable” and hit a pipe on Saturday, according to the Hubert Volunteer Fire Department. The fire department said the truck was going about 40 mph when a tire burst, making it hard for the driver to maintain control.
