Three Ohio Emergency Vehicles Involved in Crashes

A fire truck and police car were hit as they were blocking traffic from a wreck involving an ambulance.


KETTERING — Four people were taken to hospitals from two crashes involving Kettering emergency vehicles that shut down Stroop and Far Hills avenues Wednesday.

Kettering police and fire personnel responded to one crash involving a medic unit just west of the intersection at approximately 3:50 p.m.

The squad was en route to the hospital carrying a patient when it was struck by a silver sedan.

Ron Roberts, Kettering public information officer, said the two paramedics and the sedan's driver were taken to the hospital.

A police sport utility vehicle and a fire engine responded to that crash and were blocking traffic when the second crash occurred.

Roberts said the driver of a maroon sedan suffered a seizure and struck two vehicles before striking the SUV and fire engine.

In total, seven vehicles were involved and four people were taken to hospitals.

None of the injuries were considered life threatening.

Portions of Far Hills and Stroop avenues were blocked for hours as the scene was cleared.
