NBCSanDiego

An alleged drunk driver and four firefighters suffered minor injuries when a car and a fire truck collided in eastern San Diego County.

The crash happened Sunday morning on a two-lane road northeast of Alpine near the Viejas Casino, CHP Officer Brian Pennings said.

25-year-old Yesenia Mitre exited the casino parking lot and pulled out in front of a speeding fire truck responding to a medical aid call, according to Pennings.

The vehicles collided and the front axle of the fire rig was torn away. It continued out of control into a utility pole that fell into the street.

Mitre, who suffered a broken wrist, will be arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving, Pennings said.
