A fire truck was hit by a Kia on US 278 recently. The damage is still being assessed by the district of Bluffton Township. The fire truck was crossing an intersection when another vehicle failed to yield the right-of-way. The driver underwent treatment for injuries and they were cited by police. Other fire fighters inside the truck were not taken to a hospital, and instead continued to head towards the call concerning a medical emergency, according to news reports . “When you see an emergency vehicle, whether it’s a police car, an ambulance or a fire truck, first off, don’t panic,” Hunter said. “You want to pull over, but do it safely. Use your turn signal so (responders) can see that you see them and are pulling over as they are trying to get through,” said a fire department captain.
