A Raleigh Fire Department ladder truck that collided with a car on Glenwood Avenue on Tuesday evening was responding to a call when the accident took place, according to police.
A woman and three young children were injured when their Mazda 626 hit the truck at the intersection of Glenwood Avenue and Pleasant Valley Road shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday, police said.
Angela Peebles, 30, and Lamaiyah Peebles, 5, Aniyah McCullough, 3 and Ayden Peebles, 1, were taken to WakeMed’s Raleigh campus with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, said Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue.
No one on the ladder truck, a 2007 Pierce driven by Dwayne Lee Massenburg, 30, was hurt, he said.
The fire truck was headed north on Pleasant Valley Road and the car was going west on Glenwood Avenue when the crash happened, police said. A woman who called 911 said the fire truck’s siren was going and that the car did not stop, according to a recording of the call released Wednesday.
On Wednesday, police were investigating how it happened, Sughrue said. No charges had been filed.
