Two paramedics and a car driver have been taken to hospital after an emergency ambulance was involved in a collision at a major traffic light junction on the outskirts of Chester.
The crash happened at the junction of the A41 and the A51 Tarvin Road, near Vicars Cross, about 3.10pm this afternoon (Monday, March 21).
Pictures sent to The Chronicle show an ambulance having collided with metal railings and a small white car also involved in the incident. The air bags appear to have gone off in the ambulance.
A North West Ambulance Service spokesman said the two crew members were taken to the Countess of Chester Hospital to be treated for minor injuries. There was no patient on board at the time. The car driver was also taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle were deployed to the scene.
Cheshire Police traffic officers were also in attendance.
