MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A collision between a car and a fire truck
at a south Mobile intersection killed the two people in the car,
Investigators said they are looking into the possibility the

its way to an emergency medical call Monday morning.
No firefighters were injured in the crash, said Steve Huffman,
Mobile Fire-Rescue Department spokesman.
