3 Taken to Hospital After Ambulance, Lumber Truck Meet

DENVER -- Two paramedics and a technician were taken to the hospital Tuesday after the ambulance they were in rolled over on its way to a call. The accident happened about 9:15 a.m. on West Evans Avenue near South Lipan Street.

Alex Paez, a Denver Fire Department spokesman, said the ambulance had its lights and sirens on when it tried to pass a lumber truck on the truck's left side using the left lane of oncoming traffic. The ambulance and truck came into contact, and the ambulance slid onto its side.

The three in the ambulance - two paramedics and an emergency medical technician - were injured and taken to Denver Health Medical Center. Their injuries were described as "not serious" and their names were not released.

The truck driver, Karen Sherman, who works for The Denver Lumber Co., said she never saw or heard the ambulance.
