Ambulance Crashes Into Cars Personally Injuring Eight

Two Children, two Chicago firefighters and four others were personally injured after a car collided with an ambulance on the Northwest Side of Chicago. Several ambulances were called to the scene in response to the two-vehicle crash. A spokesperson stated that a woman driving an Acura northbound on Menard collided with an eastbound Chicago Fire Department ambulance in the intersection, which was en route to the hospital with two patients inside. The woman’s car flipped upside down and another car rammed into it. A third vehicle rear-ended the second car and fled to the scene. Witnesses rushed to help the woman in the Acura and her two young children, who were badly bleeding, out of the car. Neither the firefighters nor the ambulance patients suffered life-threatening personal injuries, mostly bumps and bruises. The children were taken to Children’s Memorial Hospital and are in serious condition with personal injuries. At this time, no lawsuits have been filed. To read the full story, click here.
