Truck was responding to a call when it collided with another vehicle.
A Toms River fire truck was involved in an four-vehicle accident Friday evening while responding to a call, Toms River police reported Saturday.
According to police, a fire truck operated by Bradford Kadubic was traveling northbound on Hooper Avenue at approximately 6:06 p.m. with its lights and sirens activated when it struck a similarly northbound traveling vehicle operated by 86-year-old Toms River resident Holley Simmons near the intersection of College Drive.
Simmons, driving a 2003 Toyota, then made contact with two other vehicles also traveling northbound in the right lane of Hooper Avenue. The identities of the other drivers were not released in a brief police statement on the incident.
The fire truck received minor damage in the accident, the right side of its front fender taking the brunt of the damage, according to photographs submitted to Patch by the police department.
No one was injured in the accident, police said, and the incident is currently being investigated by Traffic Safety Officer Brian Doyle. It was unclear if any summonses were issued immediately following the accident.
