ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KSDK) - A local fire chief who was seriously hurt when his fire tanker crashed is on the road to recovery.

The truck flipped Monday on Highway 47, north of State Highway E in Washington County, Mo.

Chief Richard Knight was driving to a call in another town with a tanker full of water. The truck veered to the side of the road, and Chief Knight overcorrected and rolled the truck.

Authorities had to use the Jaws of Life to rescue the chief.

Chief Knight has been upgraded to satisfactory condition at St. Anthony's Hospital in south St. Louis County.
