Tulsa Driver Narrowly Avoids Crash While Trying to Pass Fire Truck

A driver in Tulsa, Oklahoma, narrowly avoided a collision as they tried to pass a fire truck with its lights and sirens on in late April, footage shows.

Ben Mazanec said he filmed this footage of the incident on April 24. A black SUV is seen trying to pass the fire truck on the left, only to abruptly brake as the fire truck begins a lefthand turn.

On Facebook, the Tulsa Fire Department reminded motorists to move over for emergency vehicles, writing, “Our apparatus are expensive. We can’t afford to have even one fire truck out of commission, and our firefighters have enough to worry about as it is.” Credit: Ben Mazanec / FirstAlarm STL via Storyful
