A Westwood ambulance and a SUV collided on Broadway near the Westwood Plaza late Thursday morning.
The ambulance was headed north to a mutual aid call in Hillsdale, Police Chief Frank Regino said. A River Vale resident in a Nissan SUV was driving down Lake Street toward Broadway and reportedly accelerated to make it through the intersection before the traffic light changed, he said. The ambulance had slowed down at the intersection and had just begun to move forward again when the vehicles collided.
The driver of the SUV was hospitalized with minor injuries, Regino said. No one in the ambulance was injured.
The accident was still under investigation Thursday afternoon.
There was no patient in the ambulance at the time of the accident.
