    More info from the WHNT website -
    Pictures: Two Wrecks on University Drive, Connected There were two separate wrecks on University Drive on Friday morning. Both are connected. The first was at Pulaski Pike and University, and happened after 9 a.m. Three vehicles were involved. Two were westbound on University, a minivan and a P.T. Cruiser. Witnesses say a car ran a red light, hitting both vehicles. A woman was thrown from the back of the minivan, but should be okay. The second wreck happened at Jordan Lane and University Drive. A Huntsville fire truck was responding to the first wreck, and collided with an SUV whose driver apparently didn't see the fire truck coming. When the fire truck and SUV collided, the SUV spun around and his two other vehicles at the intersection, including an 18-wheeler. One woman was thrown from the SUV and was taken to Huntsville Hospital. Mike Sublett, with the Huntsville Fire Department, says other people in the SUV were also injured.

                Don't be running code as this truck was doing and get smacked by a mini van who driver was probably on the cell phone, being distracted by the passenger or just wasn't paying attention to the surroundings.
                Stay Safe and Well Out There....

                Always remembering 9-11-2001 and 343+ Brothers

                    If you work for the one pictured, LOL I could tell you stories.... I grew up (if you can call it that) just up the road in Columbia/Pulaski/Lewsiburg TN
