Ambulance Diver Ticketed After Wreck

An EMS crew had to be taken to the hospital after their ambulance crashed on Savannah's west side. Police say around 3:30pm yesterday afternoon, this MedStar ambulance was going west on 47th Street, when it slammed into a van heading north on Burroughs. The ambulance hit the curb and flipped over.

Two paramedics and a trainee, as well as the driver and a passenger in the van, were taken to the hospital. They were not seriously injured.

Police say the ambulance was responding to a call and ran the stop sign. The driver of the ambulance was ticketed for failing to yield at the intersection.
