PLUMSTEAD TWP., Pennsylvania -- A fire truck, adorned with a large American flag, tipped over shortly before 11:30 a.m. Monday in Plumstead Township, Bucks County.

The view from Chopper 6 showed the truck on its side in a parking lot. The extended ladder was on the ground, stretched across the roadway in the area 4040 Ferry Road. The flag was attached to the ladder.

Officials say the truck was placed outside the fire company to display a flag over Route 611.

When the crew went to reposition the truck the vehicle tipped over. The ladder struck a car on Route 611.

"Unfortunately a vehicle was traveling southbound on the road at that time underneath the tower, the tower hit the roof of the vehicle. There were two occupants in that vehicle that had minor injuries that were taken to the hospital and should be getting released shortly," said Lt. Richard Frederick of the Plumstead Township.

Police confirm there were minor injuries in the incident.

Route 611 was closed following the incident but reopened at about 4 p.m.
