Surveillance video shows Miami firetruck colliding with vehicle, wall of business

Surveillance video obtained Friday by Local 10 News shows a Miami Fire Rescue truck colliding with a car and crashing into the wall of a business.

The crash was reported shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday in the area of Northwest 12th Avenue and 54th Street.

Authorities said the Miami Fire Rescue truck was responding to an emergency call with its lights and siren on when a gray sedan turned into the path of the truck.

The video shows the firetruck pushing the vehicle across the sidewalk, striking the wall of a linen business.

The owner of Royal Linen Service told Local 10 News reporter Andrew Perez that she grabbed her mother and daughter and took them outside before running back in to shut off the power.

"We were so scared because the impact was in the other door, the big door, next to my mom," Maria Rodriguez said.  

The business' front metal door and an outside awning were damaged in the crash. 

Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll Jr. said the driver of the car was checked out by paramedics and taken to a hospital.

The extent of the driver's injuries has not been released.

The crew inside the firetruck was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
