Man killed after fire truck spins out of control


A man was killed Wednesday in Nova Scotia when a fire truck spun out of control and crashed into three vehicles while it was driving to another accident scene.

RCMP say the vehicle from the Pugwash fire department was en route to a rollover accident in the community of Linden, N.S., when
it came upon the accident scene.

One vehicle was off the road on Highway 6 about 40 kilometres east of Amherst and two other vehicles were parked at the side
attempting to provide assistance.

Investigators say the fire department vehicle went out of control and collided with all three vehicles, sending them into the ditch.

Police say that of the eight people associated with the three vehicles, two men were transported to the hospital with injuries.

One of the men later died as a result of his injuries, and the second man was treated and later released.
