Police and fire officials say a District of Columbia firefighter on the scene of a blaze was struck by a car and pinned against a fire truck. Police spokesman Officer Araz Alali told The Washington Post the firefighter was in the 800 block of Florida Avenue in northeast Washington about 3:30 a.m. Saturday. The firefighter saw a car moving fast and put his hands up to try to slow the driver down. Alali says the driver instead sped up and struck the firefighter, pushing him against the fire truck. The firefighter was taken to a hospital.
