Six injured after car collided with ambulance

Being careful can make motorists less vulnerable to accidents, but it does not guarantee that they will be safe. All it takes for an auto accident to happen is one negligent driver. Those who are hurt in an accident due to no fault of their own may feel frustrated that they have to go through pain and suffering because of other people's mistakes. However, there is a way for them to seek justice, and that is to seek compensation from the people who caused the accidents.

Six people suffered injuries following a collision between a car and an ambulance that occurred earlier this month in Bernardsville, New Jersey, which is just north of Somerville. According to police, the car was hit by the oncoming ambulance when it was turning into the parking lot of a train station. The ambulance was on its way to a house call. The car was occupied by two women, and the front-seat passenger had to be extracted from the vehicle after the accident.

The two women and the four people in the ambulance were sent to a nearby hospital. The occupants of the ambulance sustained minor injuries. The status of the two women could not be confirmed, but it was believed that their injuries were non-life-threatening.

The local news report did not indicate if the ambulance had its lights and sirens activated, although it is likely they were if it was responding to a call. In that case, the passenger in the car may want to hold the driver of the car accountable for getting into the ambulance's way. The law could get murkier, however, if the ambulance was at fault.
