Fire-truck Protects Officers At Crash

An Irving fire-truck did what it was supposed to do this morning — protecting the lives of police, firefighters and paramedics working the scene of a crash on Loop 12 near Highway 183.
Those emergency workers were startled when they heard a pick-up smash into the rear of the fire-truck at high speed. The pick-up driver and a passenger are now at Parkland with serious injuries. Police suspect the driver may have been drinking because the fire-truck was easily visible with all its lights flashing.
