— A woman and three children were hospitalized Tuesday evening after a car collided with a Raleigh fire truck at Glenwood Avenue and Pleasant Valley Drive.

Angela Peebles, 30; Lamaiyah Peebles, 5; Aniyah McCullough, 3; and Ayden Peebles, 1, were transported to WakeMed. None were believed to have suffered life-threatening injuries, Raleigh police said.

No firefighters were injured.

The fire truck, driven by Dwayne Lee Masseburg, 30, was crossing Glenwood Avenue on Pleasant Valley Drive when it was hit by the Mazda sedan, police said. The fire truck had its lights and sirens on before the collision, witnesses said.

Westbound lanes of Glenwood Avenue were closed at the intersection for hours due to the wreck.

A witness who called 911 told the operator that the fire truck's lights and sirens were on.

"The car is smoking really badly," the caller said. "The whole side of the car is smashed. The fireman is checking on the driver."
