Truck vs. Tree

It appeared that the right front tire blew out on the vehicle and pulled the truck into the woods.  The tree was not very large, but stopped the truck.  Both patients in the vehicle were taken to the hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries.  Units from Troutman Fire & Rescue, Wayside Fire, Iredell County EMS, and NC SHP were on scene.
