DeKalb fire Capt. Dion Bentley said firefighters from station 23, which is in Clarkston, blocked the road to help with the incident. That’s when a second hit-and-run took place.
“Firefighters were blocking the scene of an accident that had already happened,” Bentley said. “We weren’t responding. We were already there blocking the scene and someone hit the firetruck.”
No firefighters were injured. No information is available on either of the hit-and-run vehicles or their drivers. DeKalb police is the lead agency investigating both incidents.
Anyone with details on these incidents is asked to contact DeKalb police at 770-724-7610 or the Crime Stoppers tip line at 404-577-8477 or online at www.StopCrimeATL.com.
