Fire Truck Ran Red Light in October Palm Beach County (FL) Crash

The totaled truck is valued at $300,000.

The driver of the Palm Beach (FL) County Fire Rescue fire truck that overturned near Powerline and Palmetto Park roads–which Fire Apparatus reported on in October–ran a red light and was broadsided by an oncoming pickup truck that didn’t yield, reports BocaNewsNow.com.

Samuel Navarrete ran the red light on October 23 en route to a call, the report says. As the apparatus went through the red light, Philippe Pierre of North Lauderdale in a 2008 Toyota Tundra hit its rear tire, which caused it to capsize.

The report notes that Palm Beach County self-insures its fire trucks, and the totaled truck is valued at $300,000.
