DETROIT – A Detroit fire battalion chief is recovering after being involved in a crash Tuesday while en route to a scene.
Chief Cecelia Buchanan crashed with a Chevrolet HHR on McNichols Road just east of the Southfield Freeway service drive.
Detroit Fire Commissioner Jonathan Jackson said Buchanan was taken to Sinai-Grace Hospital with very minor injuries.
The other driver involved, in a silver Chevrolet HHR, was not hurt.
Jackson said Buchanan was on her way to a scene on Murray Hill Street.
Buchanan is the department's first African-American female to reach her ranking.
