Wow. I work on Marsh Street, about a half block from Santa Rosa. My coworker Holly and I had just stepped outside our office to visit the large spider that lives there when we heard a siren, followed by a LOUD crash, followed by a stuck car horn. We looked down the road, and a fire truck had just hit a car at the intersection of Santa Rosa and Marsh. We walked down there to gawk and got the story from the driver who was in the car just ahead of the one that was hit.

The car was driving down Marsh Street and the fire truck was going southeast on Santa Rosa. The driver apparently didn't hear the siren, entered the intersection on a green light, and was T-boned by the fire truck on the driver's side a little behind the driver's door. The car got slammed pretty hard and ended up facing northwest on Santa Rosa, while the fire truck spun about 130 degrees. We watched them take the passenger out the car, and she seemed shaken but OK. The driver, though, I'm not so sure about. An ambulance showed up about a minute after the crash and they were still working on extricating the driver when we left.
