FATAL FIRE APPARATUS CRASH-GEORGIA

Unfortunately a man is dead after he crashed his four wheeler head-on into a fire truck early last evening.

The crash happened just before 1800 hours at the intersection of Sylvan Road SW & Dill Avenue SW in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Fire Rescue fire truck was driving west on Dill Avenue with its lights and siren activated, responding on a fire call. The driver of the four-wheeler was driving east on Dill Ave. and attempted to pass a car in front of him but collided with the fire apparatus.

Atlanta Firefighters tried to immediately treat and resuscitate the driver but he was later pronounced deceased at the scene. Reports are that the four-wheeler driver was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Thoughts go out to all involved.
