According to a Lawrence County Police Report, the driver of the rescue vehicle had both its lights and sirens on when the vehicle was hit.

According to police, Shawswick firefighter 24-year-old David Dalton, was driving a 2013 F350 emergency vehicle south on Maple Leaf Road and as he entered U.S. 50 to cross through the intersection the rescue truck was t-boned by a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am driven by 41-year-old Peggy J. Brewer, of Bedford. Brewer was traveling east on U.S. 50 when she failed to yield for the rescue vehicle.

After the collision, Dalton got out of the rescue vehicle and rushed to help Brewer. Brewer, who had to be freed from the vehicle, complained of chest pain. An IU Health Hospital transported Brewer to a local hospital for treatment. Dalton refused treatment at the scene and later was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and was treated and released.
