Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- A Dilworth man is behind bars after he caused an accident that left a Fargo fire truck heavily damaged.

28-year-old Leonard Wessels is charged with DUI and due to his injuries was taken to the hospital. He has some outstanding warrants.

Around 3 this morning, a fire truck was westbound on Main Avenue at normal speed when it collided with Wessel's car.

He was driving without his headlights on. And fire crews had to extricate him out of his vehicle.

Two firemen were taken to the hospital where they were treated and released.

Assistant Chief Leroy Skarloken, Fargo Fire Department: "Fire trucks, they carry a lot of weight and so if they do hit something, whatever they hit is going to lose. Saying that, there's a lot of things inside that fire truck that fly around."

The fire truck is out of commission.
