Two fire trucks sustained “extensive damage” after crashing into each other at the intersection of Passaic and Calhoun streets Saturday morning, city fire Battalion Chief Todd Willever said.
Eight firefighters from two companies sustained minor injurers after a Trenton ladder truck and a Hamilton engine collided around 10:30 a.m. Both were responding to a call on the western side of town, Willever said.
The firefighters were all taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for observation. All were released with non-life-threatening injuries, fire officials said.
Willever said the cause of the crash remains under investigation, but excessive speed was not an issue. The trucks have been taken out of service.
