A Lancaster man with a suspended driver’s license crashed into an ambulance outside a medical facility, according to Northern Lancaster Regional Police.

The crash occurred just after 12:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, at the UPMC Lititz facility in Warwick Township, police said.

The ambulance, owned by Manheim Township Ambulance EMS and was being driven by an employee, police said. The ambulance was hit by a 2015 Dodge Charger, driven by 31-year-old Michael B. Key.

Key, of Lancaster, was following the ambulance because it was transporting a relative to the medical facility, according to police.

As the ambulance was turning onto Millport Road from Route 501, Key’s Charger hit the back of the ambulance, causing damage, police said.

Both vehicles made it to the facility, where the patient was attended to, police said. Investigators learned Key was driving on a suspended license at the time of the crash.

Police issued Key a citation for driving on a suspended license and a second citation for following too closely.

No injuries were caused in the crash, and both vehicles were able to be driven from the scene, police said.
