According to a recent article from KTLA, there was a truck accident in which a Los Angeles County fire engine was struck by a semi-truck at the site of an earlier traffic collision on the I-5 Freeway near Gorman, causing injury to those aboard the fire engine as well as the big-rig truck driver.
The accident occurred at about 7:00 p.m. when a Los Angeles County fire engine was leaving the scene of a previous car crash on the I-5 Freeway just north of Quail Lake Road. As stated in the article, a big rig truck struck the back of the fire engine, causing minor injuries to at least one person aboard the fire engine.
