While responders were on scene of the first crash, Paramedic Engine 707 was struck by a passing vehicle. No firefighters were injured; the driver of the striking vehicle was transported to the hospital  minor injuries.

The fire engine that was struck, a 2008 Spartan housed in the Chevy Chase Fire Station on Connecticut Avenue, was significantly damaged and had to be towed from the scene.
