Car, school bus, paramedic unit involved in Milwaukee crash

     

Tuesday, November 13, 2012 A crash between a car, an ambulance and a school bus tangled up traffic on Lisbon Avenue on Tuesday morning.

Police have not yet released details, but an eyewitness told WISN 12 News that a car hit a Milwaukee Fire Department paramedic vehicle near the intersection of Lisbon and North avenues after 7 a.m.  Byron Hoaglan said the driver of the car was trying to beat a red light.

"She came through the light and just took out the ambulance that was on a run.  Its lights were going and siren blaring, coming through the intersection, and she just hit it.  She hit it and rammed it into the bus," Hoaglan said.

Hoaglan said the driver of the car appeared to be injured and said he heard several other people complaining of pain. 

Hoaglan said as the bad as the crash was, it could have been much worse, telling WISN 12 News, "If it wasn't for that ambulance, she probably would have hit that bus."

The children on the bus were checked out at the scene and will be OK. 

Two firefighters and the school bus driver were taken to an area hospital to be evaluated but are OK. There is no word on the woman driver's condition.
