KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Four firefighters from the Kansas City, Missouri, Fire Department and one woman were injured in a crash on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department Sgt. Bill Mahoney, the woman suffered serious injuries.

She was transported to an area hospital where she's in stable condition.

The four firefighters were also transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A KCFD spokesperson said a fire truck responding to a house fire call collided with another vehicle around 12:20 p.m near the intersection of NE 96th Street and N. Oak Trafficway.

The fire truck, a Pierce pumper, was heading southbound and "utilizing visual and audible emergency equipment" when it entered the intersection during a red light and "collided" with a Nissan sedan, according to a KCPD crash report.

Mahoney said the cause of the crash is still under investigation, but said the woman might not have heard the fire truck coming before entering the intersection.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
