NEW VIDEO FROM CINCY FIRE APPARATUS CRASH

By WLTW:

WLWT uncovered new details about a crash last month involving Cincinnati Fire Engine 24.

A Metro bus driver was at the intersection of Glenway Avenue and Rapid Run Road when the fire engine crashed in front of her. According to records released via a public records request, seven cameras on the Metro bus were rolling when the driver crashed.

Records obtained by WLWT show the crew was at the Western Hills Plaza when crews were dispatched to a fire on McPherson Avenue. Records show Engine 24 wasn’t a part of the initial dispatch, but the crew added themselves to the run. The location of the fire was approximately four miles from the shopping plaza.

Just before Engine 24 went through the intersection of Glenway and Rapid Run, speeds reached 55 miles an hour, records show. Then 47 miles an hour as the truck did a 180 and flipped.

The posted speed limit there is 35 miles an hour.
