Investigators concluded the fire vehicle had its lights and sirens on when it moved west on East Marie and was struck on the rear driver side by the Chevy.

The sole passenger of the Chevy, a 22-year-old man, suffered a broken jaw and lacerated lip, police said.

The driver of the fire vehicle had back pain, but refused treatment, and its two passengers said they were unharmed.

Lee is accused of driving the Chevy and fleeing the scene. He was later found at his home, suffering facial trauma, and hospitalized and arrested.

The Hicksville man faces charges of aggravated unlicensed operation, leaving the scene of an incident and operating a motor vehicle by an unlicensed driver, police said.
