DALLAS — A firefighter was injured Monday night after either falling or being being knocked from an icy overpass by a vehicle in Southwest Dallas.

According to initial information, the firefighter was working at the scene of an accident at the intersection of Interstate 20 and Spur 408 when that individual tumbled to the pavement below. There were reports the firefighter may have been hit by a vehicle.

Emergency vehicles had a difficult time reaching the scene because icy conditions were slowing traffic, and a helicopter ambulance was not an option due to the unfavorable weather.

The victim was taken by ground ambulance to Dallas Methodist Medical Center for treatment. No condition was available.
