Just before noon a Joplin Fire Truck and a bicycle, operated by an adult male, collided at E 7th and Murphy Blvd.
Joplin Police Department Capt Trevor Duncan tells us, “We are investigating a [Joplin] fire truck vs bicycle [crash].”
The 49 year old male was transported to an area hospital.
“The person on the bicycle has non-life threatening injuries.”
We asked if either driver was ticketed and we were told this is an investigation like any other and they will have more details when they are available.
Chief Jim Furgerson of the Joplin Fire Department returned our call from his home this afternoon and he told us it is currently under investigation and he will have more information likely tomorrow.
