Firefighter hit by car

A Salisbury firefighter suffered minor injuries after being struck by a car Sunday afternoon on West Innes Street.
The firefighter was part of a crew providing medical attention to people injured in a two-vehicle accident near the entrance to Ketner Center.
He was apparently struck by a car that was passing the accident scene.
The accident happened about 5:30 p.m. and resulted in West Innes Street being blocked for about an hour.
“It’s probably just a few bruises,” Sgt. John Lanier of the Salisbury Police Department said of the firefighter’s injuries.
He was taken by ambulance to Rowan Regional Medical Center. Police officers at the scene said such response is typical as a precautionary measure.
Lanier said he didn’t have the name of the injured firefighter, though he said he was fairly certain he’s from Salisbury.
Firefighters from the Monroe Fire Department also responded to the accident. Members of area fire departments are assisting the Salisbury Fire Department until its force is back to full strength.
Some local firefighters traveled to New York for the funeral of Victor Isler, one of two local firefighters killed in a March 7 blaze. Justin Monroe of Spencer also died in that fire.
Lanier said a report of Sunday’s accident wasn’t available Sunday night. At least one other person was also transported to Rowan Regional as a result of the accident.
