MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (AP) - Police say two fire trucks have collided in a Los Angeles suburb, slamming one engine into a restaurant and causing several injuries, some in critical condition.
Monterey Park Lt. Carrie Mazelin says the crash Wednesday afternoon took place while other trucks were responding to a fire call.
Television reports show the back end of a truck protruding from a Chinese restaurant and several people being taken to ambulances.
At least one appeared to be a firefighter.
Mazelin says there were several injuries reported and some were listed as critical.
