Metro bus hits fire engine, driver at fault

MetroRail isn't the only danger served up by our beloved transit authority:
A METRO bus was involved in a wreck with a fire truck in north Houston.
Whoops! At least the fire truck wasn't responding to an emergency or anything. Oh, wait. Yeah it was:
According to HFD spokesman Tommy Dowdy, a ladder truck was heading to a fire on Lockwood around 10:30am. The truck had a green light on North Main as it went through the intersection. A METRO bus also went through the intersection and clipped the basket on the back of the fire truck.
Well, at least the bus driver wasn't responsible for the harm of innocent people. Oh, dang. Yeah, he was:
Six people on the bus were taken to hospitals for minor injuries. Nobody on the fire truck was hurt. The driver of the METRO bus was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle.
