Henrico County, Virginia. January 31, 2021. Henrico Fire Engine 305, from the Lakeside Fire House, was traveling north on Woodman Road responding to a call for an unconscious person when it spun on the road, traveled off the paved roadway, and overturned. Conditions of the roads were snow covered and very slippery. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.

All four firefighters were able to exit the apparatus by themselves and were transported to local hospitals with non-life threating injuries.

Henrico Police is investigating the accident. Woodman Road at Spider Drive is closed for an extended time for the investigation and removal of the apparatus.

The initial medical emergency was handled by other units responding at the same time. There was no delay in service.

Road conditions are extreme slippery, and snow covered. Please stay off the roads and allow our roads to be cleared.
