SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Two top officials in the San Francisco Fire Department are among those subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury investigating an incident in which a firefighter suspected of being drunk drove a ladder truck into a motorcyclist and left the scene last June.

The grand jury is looking into whether any firefighters helped their colleague try to evade responsibility.

The San Francisco Chronicle says (https://bit.ly/1ok0D3A) Assistant Chiefs Art Kenney and Dave Franklin are among subpoenaed firefighters.

Michael Quinn was driving with siren blaring, responding to what turned out to be a false alarm, when he struck the motorcyclist. Quinn reportedly was spotted at a bar guzzling water immediately after the crash.

His blood-alcohol level was measured at .13 percent.

The motorcyclist suffered broken bones and a punctured lung.
