3 Car Collision Involving an Ambulance Lands 5 In The Hospital

Capture3 Who would ever expect to see an ambulance in a car accident? With blaring sirens, lights flashing, and laws requiring other motorists to yield and pull over to the side of the road, we expect ambulance drivers to be safe when responding to distress calls. However, in Lyndhurst, NJ, an SUV struck an ambulance responding to a call, causing it to hit one car on the road, and then flip onto a parked car.

Thankfully, the car in which the ambulance landed on did not contain any drivers or passengers.  However, the driver of the SUV, in his mid 20s, the ambulance driver and passenger, as well as the 63 year old driver, and 90 year old passenger in the other vehicle, were transported to local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

According to emergency services law, which is similar state to state, “the driver of a vehicle upon a highway [must] yield the right of way to any authorized emergency vehicle,” however, it does “not relieve the driver of any authorized emergency vehicle from the duty to drive with due regard for the safety of all persons.”
