A pickup driver crashed into a Houston fire truck, yelling profanities at the firefighters before running away on foot, officials said.

Witnesses said the pickup driver appeared to be racing someone in a car eastbound on Hillcroft. He allegedly ran a red light and then hit the fire truck. The impact was so hard, the pickup lost a wheel and spun into the median.

Witnesses said after the crash, the pickup driver got out and yelled cuss words at the firefighters. The suspect then ran away, police said.
