Ind. Woman Dies after Fire Truck Crash


A woman involved in a crash with a Beech Grove fire truck last week has died, hospital officials said.

Annette Riddle was pronounced dead at Wishard Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, more than a week after the May 3 crash at the intersection of Troy and Perkins avenues.

Woman, Firefighters Injured In Serious Crash

The fire truck, with its lights and sirens on, was responding to a call of a reported building collapse when it was involved in a collision with an SUV, fire officials said.

The impact pushed both vehicles off the road and into the parking lot of a nearby Village Pantry, where Riddle's SUV hit a gas pump, causing a small leak.

Two firefighters suffered minor injuries in the crash.

The original building collapse call turned out to be a downed utility pole.
