A Calumet City (IL) engine with all warning lights on was hit by a pickup truck while refilling their tank from a hydrant during a structure fire. The vehicle hit the rear of the vehicle squarely in excess of 50mph and no brakes were applied. The driver of the truck was airlifted to Christ Hospital in Chicago in critical condition. All F/Fs were ok because they seen the vehicle coming and ran out of harms way. They extinguished a fire and immediately cared for the victim
