At approximately 2:30 PM Sunday July 31 an ambulance, believed to belonging to Hunter’s, and a small sedan collided on Washington Street at the intersection of Old Mill Road. The ambulance had overturned and the sedan suffered major damage.

Middletown Patch reports:

Three people, including two paramedics, sustained minor injuries in a crash involving an ambulance Sunday afternoon on a busy stretch of Washington Street.

The impact, at about 2:50 p.m., caused a Hunter’s Ambulance occupied by two men to flip on its side at the Gulf Gas station at 708 Washington Street, across from Wadsworth Glen Health Care.

Emergency workers had to cut through the front windshield of the ambulance and remove the Saturn Ion’s door to remove the male driver, who was taken to Hartford Hospital, according to Middletown Battalion Chief John Ricci.

“Both ambulance crew members were transported for precautionary measures only. Everybody was alert and conscious. The gentleman in the car did have to be extricated,” Ricci said.
