Three D.C. firefighters were injured while responding to a crash on the 14th Street Bridge during Friday’s rush hour, authorities said.
Around 5 p.m., the D.C. Fire Department responded to a hit-and-run collision reported on the northbound lanes of the bridge, D.C. Fire spokesman Doug Buchanan said.
Three firefighters were struck by a vehicle, a spokesman for D.C. police said, and two were transported to a hospital. Two had injuries that were minor, the police spokesman said, and the other had injures that were serious, but not life-threatening.
The driver of the vehicle that struck the firefighters remained at the scene, according to the police spokesman.
A motorist involved in the hit-and-run was also transported to the hospital after experiencing a medical emergency at the scene.
One firefighter lost consciousness at the scene, according to Buchanan, but was conscious when transported.
No further information about the incident was immediately available.
