Two taken to hospital after fire truck collision

A San Francisco Fire Department truck was involved in a three-vehicle collision this afternoon that sent two people to the hospital,
a fire lieutenant said.

The heavy-rescue squad had its siren on and was en route to a one-alarm fire in the Sunset District around 1:30 p.m. when it collided with a Ford Mustang at a four-way stop, fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.

The Mustang then struck a silver Toyota Tacoma that had pulled over to get out of the way of the fire truck.

Two occupants of the Mustang were extricated and taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries that were not considered
life-threatening, Talmadge said.

There were no other reports of injuries.

Talmadge said the firefighters had been responding to a fire at 1114 Judah St. Another truck took over the call and the fire has since been controlled.

The fire injured an elderly woman, who was taken to a hospital for treatment, Talmadge said.

The cause of the collision is under investigation.
