At an intersection ….. again.
A CHANNELVIEW FIRE DEPARTMENT (Houston area) fire engine collided with a pickup truck at an intersection in Bayview, Texas, Saturday afternoon. The engine was responding on an assist call to a working house fire when it was struck in the front right corner by a pickup truck in an intersection.
The driver of the pickup along with a female and one child that were also in the cab were airlifted to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. The three firefighters on the engine were uninjured, however the pumper had extensive damage to the front end. The pickup truck appears to be totaled.
