Firetrucks collide, one runs into restaurant

Monterey Park, Calif. (AP) -- At least five firefighters are among 14 people who were injured when two firetrucks collided in a Los Angeles suburb, sending one careening across a sidewalk and into a restaurant.

Officials say one of the victims is in critical condition.

The crash in Monterey Park left one truck embedded in the restaurant, with rubble scattered across the sidewalk.

Monterey Park Fire Chief Jim Birrell says trucks from his city and neighboring Alhambra were responding to a house fire shortly after 3 p.m. when they slammed into each other. One truck then plowed into the restaurant.

Nine victims were taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, including the five firefighters and the critically injured victim.

An investigation is underway to determine what caused the crash.
