A Sharon fire engine slid off an icy Addison Road in Brookfield Township Tuesday morning, Dec. 4, and into a ditch by the Hilltop Garden apartments.
No one was injured, Brookfield police said.
Police said they believe the engine had just been to a call and might have been on its way to another. The engine was traveling at about 30 miles per hour.
Gearhart Service, Hermitage, used two tow trucks to pull the engine out of the ditch. The engine could be driven from the scene.
Firefighters had to release some of the engine’s water to keep it from tipping, and some of the water ran onto the road. Police said they would inform the county to treat the road.
The engine took out three mailboxes on its way into the ditch.
Police reported only one other traffic crash Tuesday morning, on Route 62 at the cloverleaf with Route 82. No one was injured.
