Car collides head-on with ambulance in Simcoe

A female driver lost control of a car around 10 p.m. on Tuesday and crashed head-on with an ambulance that was on its way to attend a call.

The driver of the vehicle received serious but non life-threatening injuries, according to Simcoe police.

The paramedics also had minor injuries.

“They were able to get out of their vehicle and tend to the other driver before the other ambulances arrived and took them to the hospital as well,” said Cnst. Rich Williamson. 

Williamson added that the victim’s injuries could have been much worse if she had not been wearing a seatbelt.
