An Orlando Fire Engine hit a car trying to get away from police. The driver of that car ran off and is still missing.
Just before midnight last night, Orlando Police said an officer tried to pull over a car near Columbia Street and Goldwyn Avenue.
They say the driver of the car appeared as if he was slowing down, but then quickly sped up. Police said the car drove through a stop sign at Bethune Drive and Columbia Street.
At the same time Orlando Fire Department’s Engine 7 was headed west on Columbia Street with their lights and horn on responding to a call.
The front of the engine hit the side of the car. Police say the driver got out of the car and ran away. His three passengers were taken to the hospital in stable condition.
If caught, the driver of the car will certainly face numerous charges. No one from inside the fire truck was transported to the hospital.
