A speeding fire truck collided with a car at a Queens intersection Saturday, killing the car's driver and injuring several firefighters on their way to a blaze, officials said.
A truck with FDNY's Engine Company 275 was traveling west on 111th Avenue at 9:45 a.m. on a fire call when it approached a four-way stop at 155th Street in South Jamaica, according to New York police. A woman driving a Nissan Maxima on 155th Street proceeded into the intersection in front of the fire truck, which had lights and sirens on, police said.
The passenger car and truck collided in the intersection, heavily damaging both vehicles, officials said. The driver of the car, identified as Angela Johnson, 27, of 118th Avenue in Cambria Heights, was taken to Mary Immaculate Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Attempts to reach a family member Saturday were unsuccessful.
The crash also injured all six firefighters aboard the truck, including a lieutenant. Police said two firefighters with serious injuries and three with minor injuries were treated at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

This was sooo sad to hear. Angie was my best friend and I was hers. I still after 3 mths lata cant still belive it. I think bout her everyday and just wonder what if I was in the car wit her that day would that have happened. She was just at my house the night before and was gonna stay over but her boyfriend came to pick her up. She was like my sister and we did everything together. Angie I LOVE U and you will always be in my heart forever.
