ug. 12–The fire truck, with four firefighters inside, was rushing to a blaze. The paramedic truck, with three firefighters inside, was heading to the hospital with two young children and their grandmother.
The two red emergency vehicles, lights flashing and sirens blaring, crossed paths near Miami’s hospital district.
Neither stopped for the other, and the resulting collision at Northwest 12th Avenue and 14th Street, injured 12 people, flipped the fire truck and sent mangled metal and glass shards gushing into the intersection.
Among the injured: seven Miami firefighters, and the three passengers in the paramedic truck, and two people in a car clipped by the spinning wreckage.
