Fire Truck Collision in Philadelphia Injures 10
Nine firefighters and a bystander were injured in Philadelphia yesterday when two fire trucks collided. One of the firefighters had to be cut from the truck after he was trapped. He was the most seriously injured, but is expected to be released from the hospital today.
The two fire trucks, a ladder truck and a squirt truck, had been dispatched to a report of a fire. It turned out that they were not needed and were returning to their station when they were diverted to another fire call. One was traveling west and the other south when they collided at the intersection. The bystander was taken to the hospital because she was so shaken by the accident
An investigation is ongoing.
