While on their way to the accident, they came across another accident near Rt. 83 and Butterfield Road and, as they stopped to offer assistance, a motorist rear-ended their ambulance, the release said.

A paramedic inside the ambulance suffered minor injuries and was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

The ambulance is not drivable.
