A woman has been arrested after crashing into a Berea firetruck Sunday night. Police say the firefighter was responding to a call on KY-1016 with his emergency lights flashing when 44-year-old Sonya Smith crossed the center line and hit his truck. The truck slammed into a fence and a piece of the fence hit him in the shoulder. Both drivers were treated for non-life threatening injuries. Smith was taken to jail, charged with a DUI and assault.
