BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) — After being involved in a four-vehicle pileup, a southern Ohio ambulance crew climbed from the wrecked vehicle and tended to other crash victims.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the firefighters aboard the Stonelick Township ambulance were being lauded for their performance following the Tuesday afternoon crash.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said a pickup truck rear-ended a Honda Civic at an intersection. The impact pushed both vehicles through the intersection, striking the ambulance and another car.
The three firefighters on the ambulance tended to victims, who all are expected to survive. One person in the Civic was trapped and had to be cut free. Two other firefighters following in a staff car also assisted until other crews arrived.
The firefighters were not seriously injured.
