    Two men die when fire truck hits their car in Pompano Beach

    (Pompano Beach-AP) -- The Broward County Sheriff's Office says
    two men were killed and a third was critically injured when their
    car ran a red light and was slammed by a fire-rescue truck heading
    to an early morning emergency yesterday.
    Sheriff's officials say 22-year-old Thomas Hockman, of Pompano
    Beach, and his 25-year-old passenger, Lucas James Hamilton, of Boca
    Raton, were killed at the scene.
    Twenty-four-year-old Jonathan Markert, who was in the back seat
    of the Mitsubishi Mirage, was in critical condition at North
    Broward Medical Center last night.
    Pompano Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Sandra King says the car
    ran a red light before it was hit by the heavily loaded truck,
    which was traveling at about 36 miles per hour with its lights and
    sirens on.
    Officials say the truck pushed the car for more than a block.

    Similar thing happened in South Burlington VT within the passed year.

    Engine 1 ( One of two staffed engines) was responding to a call, rounded a corner and was going by a McDonalds or similar business and a girl in a car pulled out in front of them.

    They investigated her for attempted suicide by fire truck
