Two Manchester fire trucks and a pickup truck collided. Nine people were taken to the hospital and financial implications from the accident could be expensive, reports New Hampshire Union Leader.
The crash has severely damaged the two fire trucks and they may be beyond repair. Replacing both could cost the city between $1.6 million and $1.7 million — a ladder truck alone will cost $1.2 million.
The city has three spare engines but does not have any extra ladder trucks.
