January 30th, 2013 by Marissa Hovde
A rescue unit responding to an emergency call Wednesday afternoon in Red Oak, ended-up colliding with a patrol car, thanks to slippery road conditions. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office reports the 2011 Red Oak Fire Department’s International rescue vehicle was responding to an emergency on Joy Street, when the vehicle slid down the ice and snow covered street and crashed into a 2011 Dodge Charger Red Oak Police Department patrol car. No injuries were reported.
The rescue unit sustained $500 in damage to its right rear bumper, and the patrol car sustained between $1,500 and $2,000 damage to its front end. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by personnel from the Red Oak Police Department and Red Oak Fire and Rescue.
