Two people were injured after a fire truck collided with a Ford Taurus.
The accident occurred last month when an unidentified 64-year-old driver failed in his attempts to yield the right-of-way to an oncoming fire truck. The driver was traveling on the southbound side of Dexter Pinckney Road when he lost control of his vehicle and careened into the northbound side of the street, where he was hit by the fire truck.
The driver of the Ford and one firefighter were injured in the accident. Emergency medical services transported the injured parties to a local hospital where they were treated for their injuries. The driver was listed in stable condition and the firefighter was treated for minor injuries.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office is still conducting an accident investigation, but so far no legal action has been taken.
