A woman was hurt after her car was involved in a crash with a Denver Fire truck in southeast Denver Saturday morning.
The crash happened at the intersection of E. Hampden Avenue and S. Dayton Street at about 8:40 a.m.
The female driver was in a red Mini Cooper traveling on Dayton through the intersection at Hampden. The fire truck was headed eastbound on Hampden using lights and sirens, when it struck the Mini Cooper. A witness said the car looked like a toy as it was tossed in the air, coming to a stop at least 60 yards away from the intersection.
A Denver Fire Department spokesman said firefighters on the truck were not hurt and immediately went to help the female driver who was initially trapped in her car.
The woman was conscious and speaking to paramedics when she was transported to the hospital according to the DFD spokesman.
Denver Police are investigating the crash and will determine any citations given.
The entrance to the Hampden Town Center was closed at Dayton Street, and Eastbound Hampden Avenue was closed at Yosemite for the investigation. All eastbound lanes on Hampden Avenue were back open by 3 p.m.
