      I wonder what the Board of Inquiry decided in the end? From what the lady said, I'm not sure if the driver was unconscious BEFORE the collision, or after.

      They're both from the same firehouse but ya they may have been coming from two different locations.

      Are these rigs usually assigned to this area? Usually they know where the other rigs are coming from and look for them.
