An ambulance was knocked over Thursday morning while on an emergency call, with a patient and two paramedics inside.
Mirror UK reports that the emergency vehicle was crossing the junction of South Street and Old Church Road, in Romford, East London, at 11.38am, when the accident happened.
Michelle Anthoo, who was waiting at the traffic lights when the crash occurred, told the Romford Recorder: “The ambulance drove past on the same side as me, and a car coming from the right drove straight into the side of the ambulance and it turned over.
“Many of us ran over to help get the casualties and paramedics out of the ambulance.
“I’m still in a bit of shock, it was terrible to see that.”
It was gathered that the ambulance was called to an address in Romford just before 11am, and was taking a patient to hospital.
The two paramedics, as well as the driver of the car, were also taken to hospital.
A London Ambulance Service (LAS) spokesman told the paper that the patient is not believed to have suffered any further injury as a result of the collision. He said he was transferred to one of the other ambulances.
