A man who slammed into the back of a fire truck is out of the hospital and is now in jail.

David Hawley, 29, was allegedly driving while under the influence Saturday night when he drove through a red light, hit a taxi van, another car, and then ran into the back of a fire truck near 21st and J Streets.

Officers say Hawley got out of his car after the crash, and began to struggle with the fire personnel who were responding to an unrelated medical call.

Hawley was taken to the hospital initially after the accident. He is now in jail facing charges of hit and run and DUI.
