WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita police say that a firefighter driving a fire truck was at fault in a non-injury accident on an interstate Thursday afternoon.

Emergency crews were called a little after 3:30 p.m. to an accident involving a firetruck on northbound I-235 just north of K-42, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said.

Wichita Police Department spokesman Officer Paul Cruz said the fire truck was a pickup from the Wichita Fire Department. A dump truck was also involved in the wreck, and only minor damage was reported.

Cruz said the firefighter was at fault in the crash, though a report on what led to the collision was not available Thursday evening.
