Runway incursion accident - Lima, Peru

Looks like an Airbus of some type. The article says no passengers or crew were killed, but the vehicle occupants were killed. Fire & Rescue personnel are usually trained not to enter a runway without clearance. Hard to say what happened here.

Ew... that sucked!

Could have sucked a LOT worse, too.

Fire truck appears to have turned from a taxiway (?) to cross the runway, and just a wild guess, was supposed to hold at that point for crossing clearance, but started across the active runway.

At least the second truck got the hose on the plane without delay...

Read that one of the three truck occupants survived, he should be able to answer a number of questions.

But as stated, this could have been a lot worse.
