Pickup truck fire extinguished after single-vehicle accident in Lacrosse

Press release from Alachua County Fire Rescue

Just after midnight, Alachua County and Lacrosse Fire Rescue responded to the 18300 block of North CR 225 for a single-vehicle accident with fire. The first-arriving engine company found a full-size pickup truck fully involved in fire just off the roadway on its roof. The driver and only occupant had already gotten out of the vehicle on his own.  The male driver suffered what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. 

The fire was quickly extinguished by the initial Engine Crew with assistance from Lacrosse Fire Rescue. The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. Alachua County Fire Rescue would like to remind everyone to always buckle up and keep an eye out for wildlife crossing the roadway.
