Person hit and killed by CSFD brush truck responding to fire
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado Springs Police (CSPD) say a person is now dead after they were hit by a fire truck responding to a fire in a tree stump.
"It's going to be a while before we come to a full determination of exactly what did happen,” said CSPD Lieutenant Shannon Snuggs. "The fire department also called for additional medical personnel to come, and so American medical response was on scene as well.”
CSPD says fire crews from the Colorado Springs Fire Department were responding to the fire in Dorchester Park, south of Downtown Colorado Springs at around 3 p.m. Sunday. That's when a brush truck, which is a firefighting apparatus that's the size of a pick up truck, hit a person. The person was reported dead at the scene.
This is a developing story. KRDO has a crew at the park working to learn more information.
