LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a 49-year-old man was killed when his car rear-ended a parked Los Angeles County fire engine on the 105 Freeway in Lynwood.

The California Highway Patrol says the 2011 Toyota crashed into the back of a fire engine that had stopped to help douse a vehicle fire early Sunday.

Delaron Hines was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead.

The CHP report says alcohol was a factor in the accident, according to the Los Angeles Times.

No firefighters were injured.

    I love these comments! I feel sorry for that 2011 Toyota whatever it was. CBS may just grab (or snapshot) whatever picture they can get. Finally yes the response time couldn’t get any better then that.

    Also, yes, that is one less drunk on the road. They say that drunks are attracted to blinking lights so I guess that fire truck acted like a magnet with that drunk driver. A BIG magnet!

    Could it have been an acceleration/brake problem?
