4 EMTs Injured In Violent Ambulance Crash

Dramatic video shows a violent crash between two ambulances at a Bronx intersection Saturday that sent four FDNY EMTs to the hospital.

One ambulance is racing up Brook Avenue with emergency lights blaring shortly after 4 p.m. when it gets creamed by the second, which was speeding down 142nd St. — also with emergency lights on.

The first ambulance is hurled into a van parked on Brook and knocked on its side, while the second vehicle loses most of its front end and comes to rest in the middle of the intersection.

FDNY heavy equipment is later seen lifting the flipped ambulance off its side and towing both of the demolished vehicles away.

The injured medics were taken to Lincoln Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A fifth person refused medical attention at the scene, a department spokesman said.
