Ex-firefighter accused of DUI in fire truck accident 

Charges were filed Monday against a former San Francisco firefighter who was arrested on suspicion of DUI last year after a crash involving a motorcycle and the fire truck he was driving, the District Attorney’s Office said.

Police arrested 43-year-old Michael Quinn following the collision June 28, and he was booked into jail on suspicion of DUI and leaving the scene of a collision, according to police.

Quinn was released from jail following his arrest, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The collision occurred on a Saturday night about 11:30 p.m. at Fifth and Howard streets in South of Market. The motorcyclist suffered serious injuries, police said. Prosecutors did not immediately move forward with a case against Quinn, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

But Quinn was indicted Monday on three felony counts, including driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury, driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher causing injury, and driving a commercial motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .04 percent or higher causing injury, Bastian said.
