DC EMS Vehicle Crashes on Way to Call

WASHINGTON -- An emergency medical services vehicle crashed in northwest Washington Friday while responding to a call, according to the D.C. Fire Department.

The EMS sport-utility vehicle collided with a Honda Civic about noon Friday at Second Street and Massachusetts Avenue, fire department spokesman Allan Etter said. Massachusetts Avenue between Second and Third streets has been closed.

The EMS vehicle was responding to a call for a pedestrian who was struck at 23rd and L streets, Etter said. It collided with the Honda Civic and then crashed into a walk signal pole.

The drivers of the EMS vehicle and the Honda Civic were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Both were riding alone.
