A passenger vehicle collided with a fire truck responding to a structure fire Thursday night in Garlands Crossing, N.S.
Richard said fire departments in Windsor and Hantsport responded to the call as well. One of the fire trucks, a pumper from Windsor, was involved in a collision with a passenger vehicle a short distance away while it was on its way with lights and sirens.
He said two firefighters were taken to hospital for observation, but there were no serious injuries from the collision. He said the truck will be out of service until it’s repaired.
In an email, Nova Scotia RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jennifer Clarke confirmed there was a collision at the intersection of Highway 1 and Highway 14.
She said paramedics checked and cleared all four occupants of the passenger vehicle at the scene. Clarke said the driver was charged for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle with activated emergency equipment under the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act.
