INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Officials say one EMT has died after an ambulance was involved in an accident early Saturday morning.
Officers say the ambulance was struck by a passenger car while going through the intersection of Senate and St. Clair around 3:37 a.m. The ambulance had the right of way.
When crews arrived on scene, they found an ambulance on its side. The force of the impact caused the ambulance to slide into a parked vehicle.
Responding crews extricated the driver and passenger in the ambulance. There were no other passengers in the ambulance.
Dispatchers say the driver of the ambulance and one passenger were transported to the hospital in very critical condition. At a noon press conference on Saturday, officials announced one EMT had died from injuries sustained in the crash.
Initial investigation shows the car was traveling westbound on St. Clair when it struck the ambulance. The driver of the car was not injured in the incident. She was transported to Wishard Hospital for a blood draw, which is standard procedure.
