HOUSTON --

A Houston Fire Department supervisor was involved in a crash in Southeast Houston Wednesday.

Shortly after 10 p.m., police said, the supervisor was on his way to a scene in a Houston Fire Department SUV with his lights activated.

He was heading west on Airport Road, and as he reached the intersection of Airport Road and Telephone Road, a woman driving northbound on Telephone Road ran the red light after the light had changed to green for the supervisor, police said.

Investigators said the HFD truck slammed into the side of the woman's car, causing it to spin around.

The woman was taken to the hospital. Police said she will be held at fault and that the woman did not have a driver's license or insurance.

The HFD supervisor was not hurt.
