MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee fire truck was involved in a crash while on the way to a house fire, the Milwaukee Fire Department confirmed to TMJ4 News.
The crash happened near 35th and Center around 11:40 a.m. when the truck started to take a left turn and was struck by an SUV.
Milwaukee police say the driver, a 24-year-old Milwaukee woman, failed to yield while making a turn before colliding with the fire truck.
The driver had to be extricated from the vehicle and was treated on the scene for minor injuries. She was also cited.
At the time of the crash, the fire truck was heading to a house fire near 53rd and Center.
That truck’s delay in getting to the fire had no effect on the fire response, MFD said, as it would’ve been the third truck on the scene.
