ANNAPOLIS, MD – Eight people were sent to local hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries after a car and an ambulance transporting a patient collided in Annapolis, a fire department spokesman said.

The crash occurred around 7 p.m. at the intersection of northbound Route 2 and the westbound off-ramp of U.S. 50, near Anne Arundel Medical Center, said Battalion Chief Steve Thompson with the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

He said a 4-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy inside the car were taken to Anne Arundel County Medical Center. A 26-year-old woman and 30-year-old man were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

The three medics in the ambulance — a 32-year-old man, 35-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman — had been transporting a 53-year-old man to Anne Arundel Medical Center. All four were taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, Thompson said.

He said police are investigating the accident.
