GFD tanker involved in traffic accident on I-35

A firefighter, a man, and a dog were transported for medical treatment Monday afternoon following a wreck on Interstate 35. The same wreck involved a Guthrie Fire Department tanker truck.

The tanker truck was on the scene of a non-injury accident to protect and block the vehicle.

The exact cause of the wreck is not immediately known but is being investigated by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. However, a white, four-door car rear-ended the tanker truck.

“These blocking trucks are for our safety,” a fire department spokesperson said.

The driver was trapped inside the vehicle and needed to be extricated by firefighters. He was transported to OU Medical Center.

Also, a dog suffered injuries to the face. A local veterinarian responded to the scene and transported the dog to the veterinarian.

The firefighter was taken to a hospital for further evaluation for injuries.
