A fire truck in the Nashville metropolitan area rolled over after an 18-wheeler careened into it Wednesday. No one was injured in what local officials have called “a miracle.”
“A middle Tennessee firefighter is bruised and sore but blessed to be alive after rolling this fire truck,” a news anchor for WKRN-TV said this week of firefighter Toni Stinson, who was driving the rig when it was hit by the semi truck.

She was driving to the scene of a nearby fire when the accident happened. Thankfully, she was able to escape the truck, despite the fact the outside of the vehicle sustained significant damage and the roof of the cab was crushed nearly to the steering wheel.
The WKRN-TV host said the firefighter “was able to crawl out on her own when the truck finally came to rest.”
Stinson took to Facebook on Wednesday to thank all those who reached out to her, stating she is “very blessed.”
“Thank you, everyone, for all the calls [and] messages,” she wrote. “I’m okay, nothing is broken, just bruised [and] sore. I was very blessed today. I was hit by a[n] 18-wheeler while responding to an accident on I-40 [and] rolled in the fire truck. I was able to get out on my own. Huge thank you to my guys, DTF, EMS, DFD [and] DCSO for being as quick as they were.”
Authorities said it is “a miracle” Stinson walked away from the crash with just a few bruises.
Praise God for this brave firefighter’s safety.
