The ambulance was running with lights and siren when the accident happened and there were three employees in the unit along with the patient. They had initially responded to the man's house for a call that he was unconscious. One of the four passengers had to be extricated by the fire department, but it has not been divulged whether it was the patient or an EMT that was entrapped.
Authorities insist that the patient, who is in his 70's, remains in stable condition after being transported by a second ambulance. It is not yet known what caused the accident, but an investigation is ongoing.
