PHOTOS: An ambulance transporting a patient with its lights and siren on collided with two other vehicles and landed on its side in Dumont near the Cresskill border late this morning.
Six people were taken to area hospitals — two with serious injuries — following the collision involving the Guardian Ambulance at Knickerbocker and Grant avenues just before noon. A seventh person involved declined treatment.
The patient that who was in the ambulance was tended to by EMTs for shortness of breath.
Several fire and EMS agencies responded, including Dumont volunteer ambulance, Creskill EMS and Englewood EMS.
Dumont police were investigating.
