Two passengers including a 10-year-old boy were also injured and transported to a local hospital.

The three firefighters in the truck were uninjured.

According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office all the emergency equipment on the fire truck was properly working.  The impact was so strong that witnesses said it almost knocked the fire truck on it’s side.
