4 Injured In Collision Between Ambulance And SUV
Four people were injured when an Augusta ambulance, carrying a passenger, and an SUV collided.
Central Maine News reports the accident happened just before 9 o'clock Saturday morning, at the intersection of Route 3 and Riverside Drive. The ambulance was turning onto Route 3 when the SUV was traveling east on that road. The ambulance was transporting a patient to MaineGeneral Medical Center and had its lights and sirens turned on.
More ambulances responded to the scene, as two people in the SUV, along with the firefighter/paramedics, were taken to the hospital to get checked out. None of their injuries were life-threatening. The patient in the ambulance didn't suffer any additional injuries due to the crash.
Augusta Police Lieutenant Chris Massey told CM News that both vehicles were likely destroyed in the accident, but rescue workers were "thankful it wasn't worse."
