Camden Courier-Post – December 30, 1957
Four Camden firemen were among persons injured over the weekend in motor vehicle accidents on South Jersey roads.
Released after treatment were August Johnson, 39. of 96 1/2 Chestnut st, who suffered-multiple bruises; Reginald Laws, 36, of 1453 Bradley ave., chest and back injuries, and Capt. Raymond Amos, 52, of 823 Washington st., leg injuries.
According to police, the fire apparatus, operated by James Clinton, was traveling north on 2nd st. and collided at the intersection with the tractor-trailer, driven by James FE. Tarburton Jr, 32. of St. John’s dr, Wilmington, Dela. The impact of the crash tossed the firemen off the ear step of the fire truck, which was forced over a curb and along a sidewalk for about 35 feet. The vehicle sideswiped two parked ears and knocked down a parking meter.
