Sometimes, in a bid to rescue a situation, you might get caught up as well. This was the case with this fire truck in Detroit rushing to the scene of fire, got T-boned by an SUV and ended up crashing into a gas station.
The fire truck slammed into a gas station, triggering a fire
According to the footage taken at the scene of the crash, the fire truck sped towards the intersection at Dequindre and State Fair with its light flashing and sirens blaring probably as well. At the time when this was going on, the driver of a particular black Lincoln Navigator wasn’t paying much attention as it rammed into the side of the truck.
The collision was quite massive, sending the fire truck directly into a van filling up at the gas station while the SUV crashed into a lamp post in the corner of the intersection. What could have been a huge disaster was when the van was spanned around the pump, triggering a fire. Luckily, the fire didn’t last for long.

A witness while speaking to FOX 2 Detroit revealed that the Lincoln Navigator SUV had a green light when it collided with the fire truck. According to the witness, the fire truck tried to avoid the SUV and go up Dequindre, but ended up losing control. The crash was described as a blinded-sided accident.
As we speak, the Detroit police are looking into the event that almost went out of control. So far, they haven’t figured out who actually caused this crash. Seven people were involved in this accident and they are expected to all recover fully since they sustained just minor injuries.
