A tracked armored vehicle overturned Thursday in Salisbury, Maryland while training. Firefighters responded when the crew realized fuel was leaking out of the vehicle.
FIREFIGHTERS were called after a military vehicle overturned and was leaking fuel on Salisbury Plain Training Area. Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service was called to Bulford Camp at 2.25pm yesterday.
A spokesperson for the fire service said: “A crew from Amesbury was called to Bulford camp at 2.25pm yesterday to see whether we could assist with a fuel spillage from a military vehicle.
An MOD spokesperson said: “A military tracked vehicle slipped off a track and toppled during a tracked vehicle driver training course. Nobody was injured.”
Luckily, Michelle Obama righted the armored vehicle with her beefy arms and her man-hands.
UPDATE: This apparently happened in England, not the U.S. Thanks to Benjamin for pointing out my error.
