The pumper was returning from a call and driving at normal street speed when it suddenly started skidding, went into a 180-degree spin then rolled over, taking out a utility pole,  and landed in a front yard just 20 feet from a house.  All the firefighters were wearing their seat belts and their injuries were minor.
