A Doge Pickup was T-boned in the driver's side door by a Chalybeate Fire Truck in route to a fire in Mohawk this morning in Brownsville.
Police said that the fire truck had filled up from a hydrant and was pulling out by Brownsville General Baptist Church when the driver, Wesley Arms, said he didn't see Kyle Kacmarcik, 21 of Hawthorne, New Jersey as he was traveling south on Main Street.
Witnesses at the scene said the fire truck was using both emergency lights and siren.
Although it was the fire truck that struck the Dodge, police said the Dodge was at fault.
"According to state law, anytime an emergency vehicle is using emergency equipment, whether it be lights, siren, or both, you must yield the right of way," said Brownsville Police Chief, Jeff Jewel.
Chief Jewel said there were no injuries reported other than a few minor scrapes. Medical treatment was declined at the scene.
Correction: an earlier version of this story incorrectly listed the fire truck's driver as Wesley Adams. It was in fact, Wesley Arms. The Edmonson Voice regrets the error.
