VIDEO: Multiple people were transported to local hospitals on Sunday afternoon, after Indianapolis fire officials said a woman ran a red light and crashed into a fire engine, causing a multivehicle accident crash on the east side.
A 21-year-old woman driving a Ford Fusion eastbound on 10th Street failed to yield and struck an oncoming fire truck heading north on Arlington Avenue that had its sirens and lights activated, according to a news release from the Indianapolis Fire Department. The crash occurred at around 12:34 p.m., IFD said, as the fire engine was headed to a possible fire.
The fire engine then struck another vehicle, a Toyota Prius, which was pushed into a third vehicle, a Mitsubishi Eclipse, witnesses told Indianapolis police. Those collisions caused injuries to people in those vehicles.
There were four firefighters on board who were shaken up, but not hurt in the crash.
