An Irving fire truck that was parked to protect workers after one traffic accident was hit by another driver in a pickup truck early Monday morning.

Police believe the driver of the pickup may have been intoxicated.

The fire truck was working as a “blocker,” parked a few hundred yards behind single-vehicle rollover crash on southbound Walton Walker Blvd. just north of Highway 183.

At approximately 3:00 a.m., the pickup driver was traveling south on Walton Walker and struck the fire truck from behind.

Firefighters had to pry open the wreckage to free the two men in the truck both of whom were injured.

Fortunately, no firefighters or emergency workers were hurt.
