Police say one woman is dead and three others were injured following a car and ambulance collision in Rochester Thursday morning.
The crash happened around 1:30 AM at Central Park and North Goodman Street. Police say that the AMR ambulance was responding to a call when the car failed to yield, ran a flashing red traffic light, and ultimately crashed into the ambulance.
Three people were in the car at the time of the accident, including a 23-year-old woman who was pronounced dead at the scene and the front seat passenger who was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The 19-year-old driver of the vehicle was charged with driving while intoxicated and second-degree vehicular manslaughter. She was taken into custody shortly after being discharged from the hospital for injuries sustained during the crash.
Two EMS workers were also injured during the crash. They were taken to the hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. They are both expected to make a full recovery.
