CAR CRASHES INTO AMBULANCE
A LifeCare Ambulance returning to their base from Community Health Partners was hit by a car at W 21st St & Washington Ave. in Lorain late last night.
“Our squad, LifeCare Unit 330, was traveling eastbound on W. 21st St. around midnight when they were struck by a vehicle that pulled out in front of them from Washington Ave. (The traffic light at the intersection was flashing yellow for east and westbound traffic on W. 21st St. and red for north and southbound traffic on Washington Ave.) The car, traveling south on Washington Ave. struck the ambulance and together the two vehicles hit a truck causing minor damage to the truck. The driver of the truck was following one of our other ambulances transporting a relative to Community Health Partners. That gentleman was not injured and signed off at the scene. The woman who pulled out in front of the ambulance also signed off at the scene stating that she was not injured. The two paramedics were both taken to Community Health Partners for injuries that they received in the crash. We expect both to be released tonight.
