Shelby Township Firefighters Injured in Crash While Responding to Emergency
The collision with a pickup truck occurred at approximately 2 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of 23 Mile and Schoenherr roads.
An ambulance on an emergency run was involved in an accident Sunday in Shelby Township.
They, along with the truck driver, were transported to a hospital, but their conditions were not immediately known, police told the Detroit Free Press.
The accident occurred while the ambulance was responding to a 911 call, WDIV reported.
"The ambulance was responding to a call for service at the time of the crash." There were no patients on board," Shelby Township Police Lt. Michael Coady told the Free Press.
The accident remains under investigation.
"I was turning into my sub at around 5:15 p.m. and they were still on the scene," reader Debbie Droz posted on Patch's Facebook page. "I have seen way too many near accidents because people are not paying attention and not giving the right of way to emergency vehicles."
Anyone who witnessed the accident is asked to call police at 586-731-2121.
