An alleged drunk driver carrying a stolen gun crashed into a fire truck in San Bernardino on New Year’s Eve, damaging the truck, authorities said.
The driver slammed into a San Bernardino Fire Department truck that was headed to a structure fire at 9th and E streets Wednesday night, according to a tweet from Lt. Travis Walker, a district commander for the San Bernardino Police Department.
A gun stolen from Las Vegas was found in the car, he said.
No firefighters were injured in the crash, according to Walker, who posted a picture showing a wheel on the truck seemingly jarred loose.
“The firefighters were shaken up a bit, but they’re ok,” Walker tweeted.
A San Bernardino police spokesman was unable to provide more information about the case. A fire spokesman didn’t return a call for comment.
