An elderly woman died and 8 other people were injured after a car T-boned an ambulance in New York City.
The accident took place last Sunday afternoon around 3:00 pm in Flatlands, Brooklyn, NYC. An Hatzola ambulance was transporting a 95 year old woman who suffered a cardiac arrest to the hospital. The emergency vehicle was heading South on Schenectady Avenue with its lights and sirens on according to witnesses. As it crossed Avenue N, the ambulance was T-boned by a car travelling west bound on Avenue N.
A witness told the NY Daily News that the light had just turned from orange to red when the ambulance crossed the intersection and that the driver of the black Nissan who was speeding might not have heard the ambulance sirens.
