Firefighter transferred to the hospital after car explodes

When a worker is doing their job, they don't always think about getting hurt. This is especially true in the cases of those who work hard to protect their communities, like firefighters and police officers.

In a recent case in Lincoln, a firefighter suffered injuries while attempting to help when a car erupted in flames. The volunteer firefighter from Bennet was at the scene of a fire at Old Cheney and S. 190th when the incident happened.

School bus and car hit when no traffic controls were present

Sending your child to school on a bus feels safe. The bus is large, and the likelihood of others not seeing a large yellow object is minimal. Still, these buses do sometimes get into accidents, and children can get hurt.

When buses are involved in crashes, it can mean that many people end up having to go to the hospital. While the seats of a bus are compartmentalized, people can still be thrown or injured. People in smaller vehicles can be crushed and injured, too.
