VALLEJO — Four firefighters and three drivers are hospitalized after a chain-reaction crash involving a ladder truck in Vallejo.

Vallejo Fire Department spokesman William Tweedy said the crash occurred Saturday as firefighters were responding to a kitchen fire.

He said the ladder truck had its sirens on when it collided with a car at a street intersection, causing it strike two vehicles, overturn twice and strike a third vehicle.

The truck came to a stop a block away from the initial collision.

Tweedy said the injured were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

He said it was unbelievable that nobody was seriously hurt or killed in the crash. One of the cars was badly mangled, and ladder truck’s back box was mostly ripped up.
