— A wreck involving a firetruck injured four people in northeastern Durham Monday night.

Police said a Bahama firetruck overturned at East Club Boulevard and Glenn Road shortly after 9 p.m.

Four people on-board had bumps and bruises and were taken to Duke University Hospital, troopers said.

The driver, John Flamion, 20, had some broken bones in his hands. He was driving the truck back to Bahama from the Durham City Training Center.

Flamion was unfamiliar with the road and was not prepared for a sharp curve, troopers said. He lost control of the truck, which rolled over and hit a tree.

Authorities have not filed any charges.
