Two firetrucks were put out of service after a driver, running a roadblock, crashed into both during a four-alarm fire on Sunday night. The driver hit the trucks while trying to elude police and speed through slippery and icy road conditions, according to a report from Telegram.com
The report quoted Chief Bemis to say, “This gentleman almost killed a half-dozen firefighters.” The man, who was stopped at a nearby roadblock, decided to break through and drive through the fire scene. The unidentified man crashed his vehicle into the aerial ladder truck and an outrigger truck, damaging both.
The driver also ran over firefighters’ breathing apparatus, which was lying in the street.
