A Fort Worth firefighter was injured when she was struck by a vehicle as she arrived at the scene of a crash early Tuesday morning along State Highway 114, fire officials say.

Fire crews arrived at the scene of a rollover crash on Highway 114, near Texas Motor Speedway, at 5:54 a.m. Tuesday, officials said.

When firefighter Shonna Moorman exited the engine, she heard a vehicle coming to "rapid stop" behind her, officials said.

Moorman tried to get around the front of the engine to avoid the vehicle, but did not get out of the way in time. She sustained leg injuries and was transported to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Grapevine. Her injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

The driver stopped and cooperated with police.

The Fort Worth Fire Department reminded drivers to slow down or move over when they see emergency crews responding.
