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.

Another person at the scene of the accident also was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, according to the release.
