AVONDALE, Ariz. -- An ambulance and a car collided Monday afternoon while that ambulance was transporting a victim from an earlier car crash.

It happened on Dysart Road at Interstate 10.

The first crash was being handled on an interstate off ramp by officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, according to Sgt. Brandon Busse with the Avondale Police Dept.

A victim from that crash was being taken to a hospital in an ambulance.

Sgt. Busse said, as the ambulance approached a red light the ambulance driver slowed and waited for the intersection to clear. As the ambulance went through the intersection a car failed to stop and crashed into the ambulance.

Three people involved in that crash had to be taken to a hospital in another ambulance, according to Sgt. Busse.

All of the victims are expected to survive.

Sgt. Busse said the driver who crashed into the ambulance will be cited.
