GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

A suspect got away after hitting a Glendale fire truck with a stolen Mustang Friday morning, police said.

Firefighters in the fire engine were headed eastbound on Glendale Avenue about 7:50 a.m. responding to an emergency call with the lights and sirens on, when the silver Mustang ran a red light at the 51st Avenue intersection and collided with the fire truck, Glendale police spokesman Sgt. Jay O'Neill said.

The driver took off and has not been located, O'Neill said.

Police said the car was stolen in Glendale on Dec. 27.

He's described as a Hispanic man in his 20s and was last seen wearing a gray zip-up hoodie and black pants.

Fire officials said luckily no one was hurt in the crash.

The truck had some plumbing damage and was leaking foam onto the roadway. The eastbound lanes of the intersection were closed for about an hour while crews cleaned up the area.
