I wonder if the truck hit something else too, or whether those trucks can brake hard enough to cause injury to their occupants.

Do they still have guys hanging on to the outside of the truck?

Been a while since I noticed as I'm usually getting out of the way.

I wonder if the pedestrian couldn't hear the truck?

Doesn't necessarily mean physical injuries to the firefighters.....Think about it...

but I've never heard of someone calling an ambulance for it. Is that a thing?

If someone is very distraught, which if you’re a human and behind the wheel in this situation, regardless of fault, you’re going to be severely distraught.
