Sacramento Fire Truck Involved in Fatal Traffic Collision
Sacramento- a Sacramento Fire Department Truck was involved in a traffic collision early this morning that resulted in the death of a young woman and the serious injury of the female driver.

Truck 2 was responding to a structure fire on Marian Way around 2:00 A.M. when the collision occurred at the intersection of 9th and L Streets. The Fire Truck was responding Code 3 with its red lights and siren on. The crew immediately exited the vehicle and began rendering aid to both occupants. The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver was transported by Sacramento Fire Department Medics to a nearby trauma center. None of the Fire Fighters were injured.

"The men and women of the Sacramento Fire Department have these two and their family and friends in our hearts and prayers, as well as the Fire Fighters that were involved. This is a very tragic incident and we pray that all involved will be able to heal in time."
