KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Officials said a fire truck was involved in a wreck Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened just before 4 p.m. at 22nd Street and The Paseo.

Officials on scene said the pumper truck was en route to a fire heading east on 22nd Street when it collided with a car at the intersection.

The car ended up on a grassy area, feet from the roadway.

The driver of the car and firefighters were taken to the hospital with injuries, but officials said they don't believe they are serious.

The scene was cleared about 5 p.m.

A spokesperson for the fire department said the pumper truck was following protocol by running their lights and sirens and, per protocol, are supposed to slow down at intersections to make sure they are clear. They are investigating the cause of the crash.
