North Dakota Fire Truck, Bus Collide

A crash involving a Bismarck fire truck, a transit bus and a pickup sent two people to the hospital yesterday morning, according to The Bismarck Tribune.

Firefighter Donavan Voeller, 41, was transported to St. Alexius Hospital and was treated for "non-critical injuries." The bus driver was treated and released at the hospital.

Voeller, one of four aboard the apparatus, was the only firefighter injured.

The fire truck, which was returning from an emergency call, was traveling westbound on Century Avenue and was waiting to turn onto State Street when the bus, traveling eastbound, struck the right side of the fire truck's cab, then continued on and struck a pickup.

The crash caused $35,000 damage to the fire truck.
