A surveillance video has been released showing the crash of a Cleveland ladder truck in a parking lot last June. Two firefighters, the driver and the officer, have been charged criminally with submitting false reports about how the accident occurred.
Fire Captain Ron Vargo and Firefighter Richard Nickerson blamed the crash on a vehicle that cut them off, causing them to strike a light pole. The crash caused over $20,000 to the ladder truck and destroyed the pole.
The video surveillance shows there was no car in the area, just a large tractor trailer that was turning around.
Both firefighters have entered pleas of not guilty and have asked for a speedy trial.
