NYC ambulances crash, injuring emergency medical workers

August 10, 2019

NEW YORK (AP) — Ambulance workers themselves needed ambulances after two of their medical vehicles crashed in the Bronx.

Fire department officials say four emergency workers were injured and needed medical attention Saturday afternoon when one of the ambulances plowed into the other at an intersection in the Mott Haven neighborhood. The impact overturned the second ambulance, trapping two EMS workers.

There were no patients in either ambulance.

The emergency medical workers were taken to Lincoln Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The accident snarled traffic from the Bronx to Manhattan’s East Side.

The cause of the accident is under investigation. The ambulances were responding to an emergency call.
