A Boston Fire Department vehicle and a 1998 Audi collided on Monday afternoon, injuring four people. The motor vehicle accident occurred in Jamaica Plain. The driver of the Audi was reportedly driving to his fiancé’s house after hearing it was on fire. He collided with the 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe sport utility vehicle used by District 9 fire chief after allegedly running a red light at the corner of Amory and Atherton streets.
The driver of the car and a young child in the vehicle sustained injuries and were taken to Boston Medical Center for evaluation. The District 9 fire chief and his driver were also injured. They were transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. According to a Boston Fire Department spokesman, all injuries were minor. However, major damage to both vehicles was reported.
The fire that both vehicles were rushing to turned out to be smoke from overcooked food. The driver of the Audi was cited for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, according to a police report. The auto accident is still under investigation.
