DALLAS LADDER REAR-ENDED ON INTERSTATE - FF INJURED

     

Tuesday, January 1, 2013 Dallas police say that a firefighter and driver were injured early Tuesday when a Ford pickup rear-ended a fire truck, after a series of unrelated police incidents.

Dallas police were called around 2:55 a.m. about an accident near 11700 N. Central Expressway. When they arrived, they did not find a car accident. They saw a woman who was stranded on the side of the road in an unrelated incident.

After the woman got into the police car, the car was struck by a suspected drunken driver.  There were no injuries. The driver, John Bryson, 32, was arrested and taken to jail.

About 10 minutes later, a nearby Dallas-Fire Rescue ladder truck blocking the accident scene was struck by a Ford pickup. A firefighter and the driver of the pickup were taken to the hospital, according to Dallas police.

Dallas-Fire Rescue Haz-Mat responded to a fuel spill from the fire truck.
