The fire truck hit a guard rail and overturned. A number of firefighters inside were trapped briefly.

All three were transported to a hospital for treatment.

The other driver was not hurt, police said.

The fire chief said Saturday in a Facebook post that the injured firefighters are all recuperating at home.
