PHOTOS: Two fire engines collided near the University of Arkansas at Little Rock campus Thursday afternoon, injuring six firefighters, according to fire officials. Little Rock Fire Department Capt. Doug Coffman said the accident took place at South University Avenue and West 28th Street at 4:29 p.m. According to Coffman, the six firefighters were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. Coffman said the engines were responding to the same call on Broadmoor Drive that came in at 4:24 p.m., but he did not give any other information about the call. The engines met at the intersection, according to Coffman, but the details of the collision are still under investigation. "They're still doing the investigation on it, but they both came to that intersection at the same time," Coffman said. "Now, I don't know if somebody went through a light. I don't know any of that information."
