Colorado Springs fire crews responded to a medical call at 4:45 p.m. Sunday involving two people who were possibly overdosing inside a parked car at 5500 Powers Center Point.

When firefighters approached the vehicle, they saw one occupant had a gun and backed away.

Police arrived on scene, near Research Parkway and North Powers Boulevard, to assist firefighters when the driver of the parked car reversed into the fire truck several times and escaped, heading west on Research Parkway.
