A Bronx, NY man was struck by a FDNY truck in 2001 when the fire tuck ran through a red light. The truck collided with a car that Carlos Morales was riding in, but kept going. The truck returned to the scene of the accident almost an hour later. Morales suffered an injury to his back. Reports do not indicate if the driver of the car sustained an injury as well. Morales filed a law suit against the FDNY in 2002 for one million dollars. Due to paperwork mishaps, the driver of the fire truck was never correctly identified. Morales settled the case for $275,000.00 in 2008.
