Five people including four Firefighters were taken to hospital in the early hours of this morning after a fire engine crashed on its way to an emergency in south London. Six people were injured in total and had to be cut from the engine and a Range Rover following the incident at just after 0130 in Streatham. Those who were hospitalized – including the car’s driver – have since been released from hospital. The Range Rover was chopped in half in an effort by emergency crews to rescue those inside, while a badly-damaged London Fire Brigade (LFB) engine was also towed away. Firefighters from Norbury Fire Station were responding to a blaze at a shop on Streatham High Road before the crash, with another engine being dispatched to deal with that incident, which was quickly brought under control with no reports of any injuries.
