Cleveland Fire Apparatus Out of Service After Icy Accidents

A Cleveland fire engine is temporarily out of service after icy roads led to a series of car crashes Monday morning on the city’s East Side.

A fire engine and fire truck were responding to a two-car crash about 8:30 a.m. near the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Buckeye Road when both trucks were struck by cars, department spokesman Larry Gray said. 

No injuries were reported.

The fire truck received no visible damage when a car struck one of its tires, Gray said. A Mercedes crunched into the rear passenger side of the fire engine. The extent of the damage to the engine is under investigation, he said.
