Driver injured, fire station damaged in Methuen crash


“They pulled the truck right out, got the Jaws, and got to work,” he said. “They were treating the driver and cutting the car apart.”

Now that the East End station can only hold one piece of fire apparatus, the rescue truck will be parked outside at the central station until the repairs at central station are complete, scheduled for some time later this week. Buote said he is continuing to assess what else was damaged in the accident, but said some other equipment inside the station may also have been affected.

“There could be damage to the building’s components,” he said. “A water supply pipe was snapped off. Electronics mounted to that wall may have to repaired and replaced.”

The exhaust system used to pipe carbon monoxide out of the building while the trucks are running may also have been damaged.
