Mayor Andre Sayegh has confirmed the firefighters involved in the collision between two firetrucks are expected to be OK.
Around 6 p.m. on Saturday, two firetrucks rushing to respond to a fire at an electronics store collided on Broadway and Straight Street. One truck then crashed into the Golden Mango grocery store. The other crashed into a tree.
Eight firefighters were hospitalized after the accident.
“By the grace of God, they will be able to continue to serve our city and our country,” he said.
However, one of the eight firefighters was kept at the hospital for observation and may have some lingering injuries.
The truck that careened into the grocery store was removed from the building.
