Raleigh fire truck accident

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – In a recently released 911 call, a witness tells a 911 operator that a car collided with a fire truck on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh as the truck was headed to an accident.

“A car and a fire truck just collided. The car is smoking really badly, I don’t think anybody’s hurt, I don’t know but I thought I should call you.”

The caller then tells the operator that the front of the car was smashed and that a fireman was checking on the driver.

Police said a 2000 Mazda 626 driven by 30-year-old Angela Peebles collided with a 2007 Pierce Ladder Truck driven by 30-year-old Dwayne Lee Massenburg.

Three children were also inside of the car at the time of the crash, 5- and 3-year-old girls and a 1-year-old boy.

“The fire engine was on its way to an accident, you know it had the sirens going,” the caller said.
The truck was responding to a call when the accident happened at the intersection of Glenwood Avenue and Pleasant Valley Road.

Police said Peebles and the three children were taken to WakeMed with non-life threatening injuries.
