Several People Personally Injured When Chicago Ambulance Hits Cars

Several people, including two children, were personally injured in a traffic crash involving three cars and a Chicago fire department ambulance on the Northwest Side of Chicago. After assessing initial reports, none of the personal injuries seemed to be life threatening. Three people were taken to area hospitals and are in serious-to-critical condition with personal injuries while two children were taken to Children’s Memorial hospital. Others, including two fire department personnel, were in fair-to-serious condition with personal injuries. According to preliminary reports, the ambulance was heading eastbound on Addison when it struck a vehicle heading south on Menard. The southbound vehicle then flipped over and slid into a vehicle heading north on Menard. At some point another vehicle rear-ended the northbound vehicle and fled. The ambulance was en route to a hospital with two patients. The two patients were then placed into another ambulance after the automobile crash and taken to the hospital. They are reported to have minor personal injuries from the automobile crash. To read the full story, click here.
