Heights Ambulance Suffers Minor Damage in MV Crash

Police say a vehicle rear-ended the Heights ambulance Wednesday morning at Williams Avenue at Terrace. No one was injured and the ambulance suffered some minor damage.

A Hasbrouck Heights ambulance suffered some minor damage to the rear when it was involved in a crash early afternoon Wednesday at the intersection of Williams and Terrace avenue.

Police Officer John Behr said the ambulance was rear-ended while driving up Williams Avenue at the intersection of Terrace.

The ambulance was just returning from a fire call down the road and had no passengers inside, said Liz Waring, EMS coordinator who was driving the ambulance at the time.

No one was injured including the driver of a red compact vehicle which police say struck the ambulance from behind.

Behr said the compact vehicle will be towed as it suffered extensive damage to the front. The driver will be issued summons by Officer Brian Donohue who took the report, according to Behr.

The rear of the ambulance has a visible dent just above the fender and below the door. EMS officers said the vehicle is okay to remain in operation.
