A bad crash happened in Cambridge on Monday, when an 87-year old man pulled out in front of an ambulance that was transporting a patient to the Twin Cities.

Investigators say the ambulance had lights and sirens on as it drove south on Main Street. Apparently, as the ambulance approached 18th Ave. SW, a car driven by a 87-year-old Rymond White of Stanchfield pulled out in front of them to make a left hand turn. Investigators say the ambulance veered to avoid the car, but ended up hitting it, and then also struck a garbage truck that was heading north on Main. Luckily the 87-year old man suffered only non-life threatening injuries.

KSTP reports the patient in the ambulance was transported back to Cambridge Hospital for evaluation and then taken by helicopter to Abbott Northwestern. The two person ambulance crew was taken to Cambridge Hospital for evaluation, Burke says, but neither was seriously hurt.
