ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Fire Department shared some shocking pictures of an accident on Sunday morning with an important reminder to drivers — move over.

"Incredibly there are no fatalities from this crash," the post reads. "In less than two months, a second Engine, E-5, was struck at a high rate of speed on I-4 near OBT around 2:40 am this morning while assisting another disabled vehicle."

The Move Over law requires drivers to move over a lane when they see stopped law enforcement, emergency, sanitation, utility service vehicles and tow trucks or wreckers. If you're on a two lane road or you can't move over safely, the law requires you to slow to 20mph under the posted speed limit.

Four crew memebers from that fire engine were taken to the hospital for evaluation, the post says. The driver and passengers of the car that hit the engine were also transported.
