CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Two Charlotte firefighters have been disciplined after their ladder truck overturned on a residential street.

Officials said Friday that the driver had been suspended without pay for two weeks. The onboard captain received an unpaid one-week suspension.

All four firefighters onboard the truck were treated for minor injuries when the vehicle overturned last month in southern Mecklenburg County near the North Carolina-South Carolina state line.

Officials say the truck was responding to an emergency call at the time. No other vehicles were involved, and authorities say speed was a factor in the crash.
