Three Injured in Ill. Ambulance Crash

Both drivers, along with the original patient and a Chicago police officer, were transported to local hospitals after an SUV slammed into a Chicago Fire Department ambulance early Tuesday in West Rogers Park, police said.

The ambulance, with its emergency lights and siren on, had been southbound on North Richmond Street approaching Granville Avenue when the SUV, 1996 Toyota, came in from the east on Granville. The SUV didn't stop at the intersection and hit the ambulance, police said.

The EMS provider was taken to St. Francis Hospital, while the patient was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center and a police officer who had been in the back of the ambulance with the patient was taken to "a local hospital" with non-life-threatening injuries. The SUV driver was also taken to Masonic.

No further information was immediately released. Check back for updates.
