Police Car, Fire Truck & Civilian All Collide At Intersection

A “perfect storm” collision of emergency vehicles at a busy Clay Township intersection left a firefighter, police officer and a civilian motorist hospitalized and a firetruck flipped on its side.

The accident occurred shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday when a Clay Fire Territory truck carrying three firefighters and headed east on Cleveland Road to a residential fire on Glen Lee Trail was reportedly struck by a Roseland Police Department vehicle headed north on Juniper Road responding to a motor vehicle accident near Auten Road.

Witnesses said a St. Joseph County sheriff’s officer had pulled into the busy intersection at Cleveland and Juniper to block traffic as both the fire and police vehicles hit the intersection at the same time.
