Child Injured After Car Hits Hampton (VA) Fire Apparatus

A four-year-old was injured Wednesday afternoon when a car hit a Hampton Division of Fire & Rescue engine headed to an emergency call, an official said. 

The accident happened about 3:15 p.m. at the intersection of W. Mercury Boulevard and Fox Hill Road, according to Hampton Police Division Sgt. Jason Price.

Investigators determined the fire engine was traveling northbound on Fox Hill Road with its lights and sirens on when a Chevy Impala struck it in the intersection, Price said.

The child was taken to the hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening, he said. The driver of the Impala, Takisha McClinton, was issued a summons for failure to obey a traffic signal and driving on a revoked license.
