VIDEO: A pair of fire trucks racing through a New Jersey city en route to put out flames scorching a downtown business collided, critically injuring three firefighters Saturday evening, city officials said. The two fire department trucks were responding to a fire on Main Street when they smashed into one another at Broadway and Straight Street around 5:30 p.m., officials said. One truck was going down Broadway, the other down Straight. The impact of the collision sent one truck straight into a tree, while the other crashed into a neighboring grocery store. Video taken inside Golden Mango Supermarket showed the front of the apparatus had broken through the front wall of the store. No customers were injured. At least eight firefighters apart of the same company, in the fire engine that struck the tree, were rushed to a local hospital.
