Driver Passes Bus and Hits Ambulance Carrying Injured Patient

Two people suffered slight injuries after a driver passed an IndyGo bus and crashed into an ambulance just north of Downtown Monday morning, according to the Indianapolis Fire Department.

A car driven by a 66-year-old woman went around the stopped bus and collided with an Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services ambulance about 8:45 a.m. at East 16th Street and North College Avenue, said Battalion Chief Rita Reith, a spokeswoman for IFD.

The car’s driver and a medic were taken to an area hospital with slight injuries, Reith said. An IFD firefighter driving the ambulance was not injured but was checked out as a precaution, Reith said.

The ambulance was taking a seriously injured patient to Eskenazi Hospital, Reith said. That patient went to the hospital in another ambulance and remained in serious condition.
