This afternoon a Boston fire truck rolled through the stoplight at Parker Hill Ave. and Huntington Ave., in the Mission Hill neighborhood, and smashed through the front gate and then the lobby of the Mission Park apartments.
One firefighter was killed while another fireman and two children were hospitalized as reported by the Boston Globe. A Globe source reports that the the truck might have lost control of its breaks as it descended down the steep hill before its eventual collision.
The scene was swamped by dozens of firefighters, policemen, and reporters following the accident. Currently that section of Huntington Avenue has been closed to both pedestrians and reporters.
