Woman injured in collision with fire truck

A woman was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries this morning after a collision with a Spokane fire truck at 29th Avenue and Ray Street.

No firefighters were hurt in the crash, but the truck will need repairs, authorities said.

The emergency vehicle was driving with lights and sirens about 11:15 a.m. en route to a fire in the 2100 block of East 48th Avenue, said Jennifer DeRuwe, a spokeswoman for the Spokane Police Department.

The woman, who was driving a Jeep, had the green light, DeRuwe said. ”It was the responsibility of the emergency driver to make sure the intersection was clear.”
