WFOR-TV reported that in mid-March an auto accident involving a car and a Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue truck injured six people, including a child.
According to the report, after the truck and car collided, one of the vehicles struck a fire hydrant, leading to water flooding the crash scene. Following the wreck, the car was reportedly mangled and the fire rescue truck had overturned.
People were trapped in both vehicles, including three firefighters trapped inside the truck and three other people trapped inside the car. A witness gave police officers a wrench to break the fire truck’s windshield, which enabled the firefighters to be pulled out of the vehicle. There was no report of how the other three people, including a little girl who was trapped in the back seat after being knocked from her car seat, were freed from the car.
All six of the people who had been trapped following the crash had to be taken to the hospital, with each of them expected to be okay.
Hollywood Police reported that the driver of the car might have caused the wreck when he sped off from a traffic stop. An investigation of the incident was still ongoing at the time of this report.
