SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Another Shreveport firefighter is injured after another fire truck rollover Tuesday night. This makes the second rollover for the department within 3 days.

More than a dozen first responders were at the crash scene just before midnight in the 3000 block of Montana Street in Shreveport's MLK neighborhood.

Assistant Fire Chief Fred Sanders said a fire crew was investigating a call about smoke in the area. Fire engine 6 was driving northbound and tried to make room for a southbound passing car when the truck tipped over into a ditch on Montana Street.

The car then drove away from the scene, said Chief Sanders.

"SPD is investigating. We do know this is a narrow road, there is no curb. If you go off the road here, you're in a ditch," said Chief Sanders. "That's what happened with engine 6."

There were 3 firefighters in the truck. One of them was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Chief Sanders said the firefighter driving the truck was not the normal driver.

A portion of Montana was closed off while tow trucks worked to upright the unit.

Some people who live in the area may have experienced a brief power outage because Swepco had to disconnect power lines over the fire truck in order to remove it from the ditch.

Center Point energy was also called to survey a gas line located in the ditch.

On Monday, a fire truck overturned near the intersection of Kings Highway and Linwood Avenue. One of the two firefighters injured in that crash is still recovering in the hospital.
