A semi truck crashed into a Smiths Grove fire truck early Sunday morning.

At six Sunday morning, the fire department was responding to an accident at the 38 mile marker of I-65 South.

While on scene, a tractor trailer driven by 33 year old Kumar Amandeep of West Hill, California, was headed southbound when he lost control, hitting Smiths Grove Fire Department Rescue 30.

The truck separated from the trailer and overturned, hitting Chief Kenneth Priddy and Assistant Chief Steven Wilson with the Smiths Grove Fire Department.

Wilson was transported to the Medical Center at Bowling Green by the Medical Center EMS for non-life threatening injuries.

Chief Priddy and Amandeep were not injured in the crash.

The fire truck was a total loss, with most equipment damaged.

​The investigation is ongoing, and is being led by Kentucky State Police.
