HOUSTON (AP) - Officials say 10 people, including eight firefighters, have been taken to Houston hospitals after a traffic accident in which two fire trucks responding to a call collided.
Houston District Fire Chief Tommy Dowdy says the two fire trucks were responding Monday to a report of an apartment fire when they
collided at an intersection. One truck flipped onto a vehicle driving through the intersection.
Dowdy says one of the firefighters, who was thrown from the fire truck, and a person on a bicycle who was hit by one of the trucks
suffered severe injuries. The driver of the vehicle was also injured.
Fire department officials later determined the reported apartment fire was a false alarm.
The cause of the accident is still being investigated.
