Four firefighters and one civilian were hurt after a collision Monday morning between a fire engine and a SUV at Commonwealth Avenue and Dartmouth Street in Boston’s Back Bay. The crash involved Engine 7.
Boston Fire Commissioner Joseph Finn said the engine was responding to a Boylston Street call about smoke with its lights and sirens on at the time of the crash.
“It appeared that the driver of a vehicle came out into the intersection,” Finn said. “The Engine hit them and then careened off, moved off into the right hand side and hit the parked cars.”
The fire truck crashed into a line of about 10 parked cars after the collision.
