Two volunteer firefighters with the Preston Department are seriously hurt after the fire truck they were in ran off the road when the driver swerved to avoid a wrong-way vehicle and then overcorrected sending the truck back across and off the road again where it struck a culvert and overturned.

The driver, 26-year-old David Bennett of Cross Timbers, was ejected through the windshield while the occupant, 18-year-old John Sanchez also from Cross Timbers, was also seriously hurt. They were both flown to Mercy Hospital in Springfield.

The accident happened Saturday afternoon on Route-D, south of Preston, in Hickory County.
