Above is a must see video from this morning’s wreck of Medic 50 in Philadelphia this morning. It shows the collision occurring and the immediate aftermath.
The ambulance, Medic Unit 50, was northbound on Broad Street with its lights and sirens on when it was hit by a silver Chrysler sedan that was westbound on Callowhill Street about 7 a.m.
The ambulance flipped onto the driver’s side of the vehicle and the sedan, its front end smashed in, ended up facing toward the northeast corner of Broad and Callowhill.
Two Philadelphia Fire Department paramedics were taken to Hahnemann University Hospital for treatment. The paramedics’ injuries did not initially appear to be serious.
There were no patients inside the ambulance at the time of the accident.
