RESPONDING CRASH IN NJ

     

Friday, November 30, 2012 A fire rescue truck, its lights flashing and sirens blaring, struck a Jeep Cherokee that ran a stop sign before crossing Central Avenue on Friday afternoon, officials said.

The Jeep went through a stop sign on Railroad Avenue just before 1 p.m. and was struck by the rescue truck, with two people on board, said Capt. Thomas Salcedo of the Hackensack police.

The driver of the Cherokee, who along with a passenger suffered minor injuries, was issued tickets for failing to stop at a stop sign and failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, Salcedo said. The driver’s identity was not immediately available.

Both people in the Cherokee were taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with minor back and neck injuries, said Lt. Justin Derevyanik of the Hackensack Fire Department. The Cherokee was towed from the scene, he said. The two firefighters in the rescue truck were not injured.

The rescue vehicle, which suffered minor front-end damage, was heading west on Central Avenue, responding to a fire alarm caused by a faulty alarm system at a building on High Street, Derevyanik said. The vehicle remains in service, he said.
