Brinks guards injured in rollover accident www.privateofficer.com
Jacksonville Fla Oct 18 2010 The Main Street bridge reopened just after 1:30 p.m. after being closed for a few hours due to an accident, police said.
A one-vehicle accident at about 9:45 a.m. today caused a Brinks armored car to overturn, and two people were transported by rescue to a hospital, according to Jacksonville Sheriff’s officer C.E. Moody, who was at the scene. Injuries were not serious, he said.
Dick Lundy, Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department district chief, said the person in the back of the car was banged up and had a gash on his head. He was transported with the driver, who was shaken up, to Shands.
Another Brinks armored car arrived to retrieve the accident vehicle’s cargo. A large amount of oil was spilled.
Russell Hicks, who was on his morning walk over the bridge at the time of the accident, said “we heard screaming tires and turned around and saw it airborne. It went over and landed on its roof and slid. People were trying to kick the windows in and I told them, ‘it’s an armored car, you’re not going to get in there until they open the doors.’ “
