Fire truck hits sheriff’s office car

LOVELAND PASS – A sheriff’s vehicle suffered minor damage after a fire truck collided with it on U.S. Highway 6.

A Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputy was assisting with an accident response near the runaway truck ramp on Loveland Pass Friday. The emergency brake on a Snake River Fire truck parked uphill failed, and the truck rolled backwards, sideswiping the deputy’s patrol car before lodging itself in the snowbank on the other side of the highway.

No injuries were reported. Officers involved notified their supervisors, according to a sheriff’s office report.
