Redmond Fire Department battalion chief suffers minor injuries in accident
The Redmond Fire Department battalion chief suffered minor injuries when his Chevy Suburban — with lights and siren activated while he was on a call — was struck by another vehicle at about 3:40 p.m. on Wednesday.
According to Redmond Police Department public information officer Julie Beard, the crash occurred at the intersection of Redmond Way and 164th Avenue Northeast. As the chief drove through the intersection, most vehicles yielded, but one or two did not and that resulted in two possible crashes with one vehicle striking the fire SUV. (Beard was still trying to determine how many vehicles were involved in the accident at the Reporter's press time.)
The chief was not transported to the hospital. No one else was injured.
"My hope is that this is a reminder of the danger emergency responders place themselves in responding to emergencies and reminding the public to always be cognizant of emergency lights and sirens," Beard said.
