An ambulance transporting an 80-year-old patient overturned in a three-vehicle crash Sunday that sent five people to hospitals, Philadelphia police said.
The victims were taken to Temple University Hospital and Einstein Medical Center. Their injuries were not described as life threatening.
The Ford ambulance had its lights and sirens on as it headed east on West Olney Avenue, near La Salle University. As the ambulance approached a red traffic light around 9:34 a.m., it hit a Mercury Sable, which had the green light and was traveling north on 20th Street, police said.
