Four Waterbury firefighters suffered minor injuries when their engine was struck by a car while responding to an emergency call Thursday evening, according to the fire chief.
Waterbury Fire Chief David Martin said the fire truck was on the way to the scene of a possible condo fire between 7:30 and 8 p.m. when a car pulled out of a driveway on Oronoke Road and hit the side of the engine.
Four firefighters were taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries, including a broken hand, Martin said. People in the other vehicle also suffered minor injuries but were not hospitalized.
Both the fire engine and the passenger car sustained heavy damage.
Martin said other fire companies took over the emergency call.
Police are investigating the crash.
