11 people were injured when an ambulance carrying a patient T-boned a minivan yesterday afternoon. Around 4:10 p.m. the ambulance was driving westbound on Galena Boulevard with lights and sirens activated when it crashed into a minivan traveling south on West Street.
The driver of the minivan was a man in his early 20s, and a 27-year-old woman was in the passenger seat. There were six children in the minivan: a set of 1-year-old twin boys, and a 4-year-old, a 6-year-old, a 12-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl. One of the 1-year-old boys and the 12-year-old boy were taken to a Chicago hospital for serious head wounds, police said. No further details about the conditions of the other occupants was released. The two Aurora Fire Department paramedics and the patient in the ambulance were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
