A Southeast Kansas firefighter is in the hospital after a medial issue caused him to crash a fire truck into a tree.

According to a Facebook post by Columbus Fire Rescue, the department was responding to a fire call shortly after 9:00 a.m. Sunday morning when a “medical emergency” caused the driver to pass out and hit a tree.

KSNF reports the driver was taken to a Joplin, Mo. hospital for treatment.

Columbus Police Chief Jason Daniels told KSNF he hopes for a swift and full recovery as the Kansas Highway Patrol investigates the crash.
