PASSAIC, NJ – A minivan was T-boned by a firetruck after failing to yield to the emergency vehicle’s lights and sirens in Passaic on Sunday afternoon.
The firetruck had slowed down to drive through the intersection at Paulison Avenue and Main Avenue on its way to a call, according to Daily Voice. When the 50-year-old firefighter who was operating the firetruck observed that traffic had stopped for the truck, he drove into the intersection. The Honda Odyssey, driven by a 30-year-old local man, drove around a stopped car into the intersection and was T-boned by the truck at about 1 p.m.
Three firefighters received treatment after the accident. Thankfully, the injuries were not life-threatening.
The minivan’s driver was issued summonses for improper passing and failure to yield. He did not report any serious injuries.
