  • A Lenox firefighter was improving Tuesday after being ejected from a brush truck involved in a crash in Dent County Monday night, according to a Mercy spokesperson.
    Brad Haller, media relations specialist with Mercy Springfield Communites, told The Rolla Daily News Tuesday that the firefighter, Kyle A. Good, was listed in good condition.
    According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Good, 26, of Rolla, was driving a Lenox Rural Fire Department brush truck westbound on Highway C, about 10 miles northwest of Salem, when the truck’s front left tire blew out.
    The truck struck an embankment and overturned, ejecting Good, the patrol report stated.
    Good was flown by an air ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri.
    He was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol report stated.
    The incident occurred around 6:15 p.m. The brush truck was totaled.
    Sgt. Dan Crain, public information and education officer with the highway patrol Troop I region, said the brush truck was traveling back after responding to brush fires earlier. Crain said the truck was going at a “normal speed.”
