From WCSC-TV

COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. -- A firefighter is seriously injured after a fire truck flips on the way to an emergency call. It happened on Jacksonboro Road in Colleton County a little before five o'clock. The firefighter was flown to MUSC.

MUSC says that 27-year-old Michael Juhasz is now in fair, but stable condition. The Colleton County fire director says he was flown to the hospital with several broken bones.

The fire and rescue team had to use the Jaws of Life to pull him from the twisted debris. The fire truck had flipped many times and into a ditch. It was destroyed.

Two giant tow trucks on the scene pulling away all the pieces. Firefighters, Sheriff's deputies, and investigators remained at the crash site for about four hours.

The fire director says Juhasz, a firefighter with one and a half years experience, was wearing a seatbelt when the accident happened.

There are very few details at this time as to why the truck veered from the road and flipped in a ditch. Right now Highway Patrol is investigating this crash.

Juhasz was driving by himself at the time of the crash. The fire director says another small fire pickup truck was ahead of him, but not involved in the crash.
