Firefighter killed when truck rolls over on way to emergency

Authorities say a firetruck in Mississippi crashed while responding to a call, killing one firefighter and injuring two others.

The Meridian Star reports that the crash happened Friday in Meridian, a city near the Alabama state line.

Fire Chief Anthony Clayton is quoted by the newspaper as saying that the truck rolled over on its way to an equipment-trailer fire.

Clayton did not immediately release the names of the firefighters.
