Six people — including five firefighters — suffered injuries after a speeding firetruck slammed through a Brooklyn storefront late on Sunday night.
Fire Department sources said the rig from Engine Company 254 was en route to a fire on Bay Parkway in Bath Beach at about 11:29 p.m. on Dec. 20 when it suddenly careened into Coquette Kids clothing boutique at 437 Avenue U, at East 4th Street in Gravesend.
The truck obliterated the first-floor storefront, creating a gaping hole in the building. Five residents living above the shop were evacuated as a precaution.
The injured firefighters on board the Engine 254 truck were brought to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, while one civilian on the ground was taken to Maimonides Medical Center. All suffered injuries not considered life-threatening.
The investigation is ongoing, Fire Department sources said.
