CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
On the way to an emergency call, a Charlotte fire truck ended up in its own emergency in South End shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday. Witnesses said they heard the fire truck coming through the intersection of West Boulevard and South Tryon Street. "Everyone heard the sirens but this guy just kept flying through," witness Tracy Walley said. The truck and an orange car collided, which popped up the hood to the car and cracked the fire truck's windshield. "It sounded pretty crazy, like the windshield smashing. I've never seen a bumper go straight into a car like that," witness Torie Walley said. No firefighters were injured, but the driver of the car went to the hospital injuries that were not life-threatening. Witnesses said that driver is lucky the fire truck wasn't traveling any faster.
