Police closed Amherst Street on Sunday morning after a motor vehicle crash involving an ambulance and a car. The ambulance reportedly hit a Nissan Maxima as the car was exiting the highway at Exit 7. The driver was treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries, and the ambulance attendants suffered minor injuries.
The patient inside the ambulance was apparently not injured in the car crash and was taken to Massachusetts’ Lahey Clinic for ailments not related to the accident. Police said they were called to the scene of the accident at 11:30am. When they arrived, the ambulance had its emergency lights and sirens on.
The auto accident is being investigated by the Police Department’s Accident Reconstruction Unit.
