"We were dispatched to a crash, a two-vehicle crash on 295 south right near the Meadowbridge Exit," Johnson said.
Johnson drove a firetruck to the crash scene. Lewis, Chris Elish, and their leader Lieutenant Brad Clark rode along.
They pulled to the side of the road and activated the truck's emergency lights.
"We stopped at the first car, we all got out, and we were going to walk up to the second car," Lewis said.
But, barely five seconds into their response they heard Brad scream.
"He said something before, he warned us, like you gotta be kidding me, oh my God, or something like that," Elish said
"I heard Brad yelling. At first I thought it was something for the people we were there for, so I started running, and it just hit us," Lewis said.
