The wintry mix and icy road conditions caused problems for emergency vehicles including a fire truck and a salt truck Friday.

A salt truck overturned on Tenby Chase Drive near North Drive In Delran, N.J. after hitting a large patch of black ice around 8 a.m., according to police. The driver suffered minor injuries.

A second accident in New Jersey left a firefighter hurt after the truck lost control on the icy roads.

The Tabernacle Fire Company was responding to a call when its truck lost control and hit at least three other vehicles on Route 206 near milepost 16.2 in Southhampton, according to police.

The driver suffered injuries to his neck and back, but officials say they are not serious.
