A cement truck and a fire truck collided this afternoon in southern Dallas, injuring several people.
Truck 24 from Dallas Fire-Rescue was headed to a structural fire when it collided with a cement mixer at 2nd Avenue and Hatcher Street. The cement mixer was knocked over onto its side, nearly crushing a smaller pickup truck.
Miraculously, the pickup truck was wedged between the cement mixers cab and the mixing drum, which kept the pickup from being crushed under the weight of the drum.
According to a spokesperson for Dallas Fire-Rescue, six people were transported to local hospitals after the accident, including four firefighters. All six had relatively minor personal injuries.
The cause of the accident is still being investigated by Dallas police.
