2 top SF fire officials subpoenaed over crash
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Two top officials in the San Francisco Fire Department are among those subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury investigating an incident in which a firefighter suspected of being drunk drove a ladder truck into a motorcyclist and left the scene last June.
The grand jury is looking into whether any firefighters helped their colleague try to evade responsibility.
The San Francisco Chronicle says (http://bit.ly/1ok0D3A) Assistant Chiefs Art Kenney and Dave Franklin are among subpoenaed firefighters.
Michael Quinn was driving with siren blaring, responding to what turned out to be a false alarm, when he struck the motorcyclist. Quinn reportedly was spotted at a bar guzzling water immediately after the crash.
His blood-alcohol level was measured at .13 percent.
The motorcyclist suffered broken bones and a punctured lung.
