Two Paramedics Injured in Ambulance Crash in Fort Collins

Fort Collins, CO -- Three people required medical treatment after a sedan crashed into an ambulance with its lights and sirens activated.

The UCHealth ambulance was heading north on College Avenue when it went through a red light.

Although the ambulance was responding to a 9-1-1 call and had its sirens active, the driver of a Chrysler 200 sedan continued through the intersection and crashed into the ambulance. 

Both paramedics in the ambulance were injured in the collision. The Fort Collins Police Services reported that the EMTs and the 67-year-old sedan driver - who sustained moderate injuries - were transported to local hospitals. Authorities have not provided a further update on the involved parties’ conditions.

The ambulance was not transporting a patient at the time of the crash; the two paramedics were the only individuals inside the vehicle. 

The FCPS closed College Avenue between Elizabeth and Garfield Streets for three hours while cleaning up and investigating the crash scene. Although the investigation is ongoing, police suspect that speed might have factored into the crash. Police ask any individuals with information to contact Officer Ken Koski at (970) 416-2229.
