Fire Truck Damaged In Collision

A 40 year old Firefighter is now being charged with failing to stop for a red light. 
Police say the charge stems from an incident where a Pumper Rescue unit was travelling westbound through the John and Court Street intersection with sirens and lights activated, when it struck a pick-up truck. The 50 year old driver of the pick-up was taken to hospital, treated and released with minor injuries. Police say the passenger side of the pick-up was completely destroyed, meanwhile there is extensive damage to the front end of the Pumper Rescue unit.
