INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A fire truck and a vehicle were involved in a crash on the north side of Indianapolis Tuesday afternoon.

It happened at Keystone and Binford around 3:30 p.m. Officials at the scene say the fire engine was on its way to a possible apartment fire at the time of the crash.

According to a release from the Indianapolis Fire Department, the engine was entering the intersection from the westbound lanes of Fall Creek. The engine was trying to go around three lanes of stopped eastbound traffic and briefly entered the westbound lanes to go through the intersection and re-enter the eastbound lanes on Binford.

The car was heading south on Keystone and turned into the right westbound lanes of Fall Creek but continued looking east as he made the turn. A State Police officer who witnessed the crash says the driver of the car didn’t see the truck coming because he didn’t look in the other direction.

The fire truck and car collided. Both were significantly damaged.

Fire officials say the person in the car was taken to Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital with lacerations. None of the firefighters on board were injured.

The crash is under investigation.
