A Chevrolet pickup truck drove through a red light and smashed into a Chicago Fire Department truck this past Wednesday morning. The truck crash occurred as the fire truck was returning from a call with its lights activated.
According to a Chicago Police report of the truck accident, the pickup truck was traveling westbound on 51st Street in Chicago, Illinois at around 11:30 a.m., when the pickup ran a red light and struck the fire truck, which was heading southbound on Union Avenue. While the Fire Department truck sustained some damage, the pickup truck’s front side was smashed and the pickup was totaled.
The driver of the pickup truck and her passenger were transported to the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital emergency room, where they were listed in serious-to-fair condition. The driver of the fire truck was taken to the Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center emergency room for observation.
