According to the Nevada State Police, an SUV struck a firetruck after running a red light on Monday, August 15th. A CCFD fire engine was on an active call near Warm Springs Road and Paradise. While traveling through a green light, according to Nevada State Police and the Clark County Fire Department, a gray Toyota SUV traveling eastbound ran the red light, colliding with the CCFD fire truck. Two occupants of the SUV were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries and CCFD also reported minor injuries sustained by firefighters.
