Ambulance collides with car in morning in downtown Louisville

On early Monday morning a car ran into an ambulance near a downtown interstate exit, Louisville.

No injuries have been reported in this crash.

Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell said the collision took place around 2:30 a.m. A car was getting off of Interstate 65 North on the Brook Street exit, Mitchell said but it collided with an ambulance from New Chapel, Indiana, that was traveling east along E. Chestnut Street. 

A 3-year-old child and a family member of the child who was in the rear of the ambulance were treated for small injuries — the child was taken to nearby Norton Children’s Hospital — and an EMT and the ambulance driver are expected to recover after experiencing minor injuries.

LMPD First Division officers will keep investigating the incident, Mitchell said. A preliminary investigation found that the ambulance “failed to yield the right of way and collided with the passenger vehicle,” Mitchell said.

Morning commuters should not be affected. A MetroSafe supervisor said at 7:45 a.m. that the scene had been cleared.
