Boston EMS says four people were injured when a Boston Fire Department engine crashed into a bank in Dorchester early this (Thursday) morning. The firefighters were responding to a two-alarm fire when there was a collision with the SUV of an off-duty Boston police officer.
An off-duty Boston police officer has life-threatening injuries and four firefighters were injured after a firetruck and the officer’s vehicle collided, sending the firetruck into the front of a Bank of America in Dorchester early Thursday morning.
The firetruck and the vehicle collided on Washington Street and Talbot Avenue around 2:26 a.m., according to a statement from Boston police. The truck ended in the entrance to the bank and the officer’s vehicle, a black SUV with front-end damage, came to rest outside the bank.
