CHOCAGO, IL - Four people were sent to the hospital after a multi-vehicle crash sent an ambulance into a building in Chicago's Tri-Taylor neighborhood on Thursday morning.
According to WLS, a sedan failed to yield to the ambulance, which was transporting a patient with lights and sirens active, in the 2300 block of West Harrison Road at about 7:15 p.m. The two vehicles collided, causing the ambulance to hit a nearby parked vehicle before it crashed into a building.
The patient being transported in the ambulance, a 53-year-old man, was rushed to Stroger Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
Three Chicago Fire Department members on the ambulance were also hospitalized with injuries considered non-life-threatening.
The driver of the sedan, 20, declined any medical assistance at the scene.
