Youngstown fire vehicle involved in accident

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A Youngstown Fire Department vehicle was involved in an accident at the intersection of Midlothian and Sheridan roads at 10:47 a.m. on Saturday while responding  to a possible house fire on Loveland Road.

Battalion Chief Jim Drummond responded to the call in Battalion 2 from YFD Station 2 on Indianola Avenue and was traveling on Midlothian Road when he struck a Mercury Grand Marquis travelling on Sheridan Road.

Both Drummond and the driver of the other vehicle were transported to a local hospital to be checked and Drummond has since been released. No injuries have been reported for either party.

Battalion 2 is out of service at this time, but officials report the damages are repairable.

The accident is still under investigation by the Youngstown Police Department.
