LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Lincoln County sheriff says a firefighter is injured, after a fire truck flipped.

It happened on Highway 643 near Crab Orchard, near the U.S. 150 intersection, around 3:15 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Investigators say the truck was on an emergency run to a car crash, and was trying to get around a road construction crew, when the water shifted in the truck, causing it to roll on its side, and into a ditch.

Only one firefighter was on board, the sheriff says she was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
