A horrible outcome in Florida following a child being struck by Jacksonville (Florida) fire apparatus over the weekend. The mother and father of that girl hit by the JFRD engine on Saturday evening said the girl has died. Neighbors in the Oak Hill Park area of Jacksonville Heights captured surveillance video (below) of the elementary-age girl hit by the fire truck as it pulled out of Station 31. A resident stated that the girl got spooked by a neighbor’s dog and ran out into the street in front of the fire truck. The neighbor said the truck had its lights on but no siren.

Our condolences to the families as well as the Jacksonville Firefighters who are and will be impacted by this terrible loss.
