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
