INDIANAPOLIS– A firefighter with the Wayne Township Fire Department was transported to the hospital Tuesday morning after ice flew off a pickup truck, striking a fire truck’s windshield.
The fire truck was traveling westbound on 21st Street, just east of Girl School Road, around 10 a.m., when ice flew off an oncoming pickup truck, striking the fire engine and knocking out the windshield on the driver’s side. Officials said the driver of the fire engine was able to safely bring the truck to a stop.
The driver of the light blue pickup truck did not stop and continued driving eastbound on 21st Street. Fire department officials said they will review the camera aboard the fire engine in an attempt to get a better description of the vehicle involved.
