Leslie County Double Accident

Several people, including two firefighters, are recovering in the hospital after two accidents in Leslie County.

The first, happened just before one o'clock, when a coal truck on Highway 421, flipped on its side and dumped some of its load on a car.

Then, a fire truck leaving the scene of that crash, flipped over onto its top, trapping the Stinnett fire chief and another firefighter.

Both men were able to get out and neither have life-threatening injuries. The assistant chief says they were putting their lives on the line for others.
