CHICAGO -- A firetruck was hit by gunfire during a response to a car accident Thursday morning.

The shooting happened after two cars were in an accident at 79th and Yates in the city's South Chicago neighborhood.

The accident led to an argument -- that's when someone in the car called another person who arrived in a different vehicle and started shooting.

One bullet broke a firetruck's windshield. A firefighter was injured by the broken glass.

The initial crash was said to be caused by one of the drivers blowing through a red light.

Police chased down and arrested the suspect.  They also collected bullet casings.

No charges have been filed.
