A 95-year-old woman, who was being transported in an ambulance, died and eight others were injured after a car plowed into the emergency vehicle in Brooklyn on Sunday, police and sources said.
The elderly woman was suffering from a heart condition when the crash occurred around 3 p.m. at Avenue N and Schenectady Avenue in Flatlands, cops said.
The woman’s son, who was also inside the ambulance at the time, was among those injured, WPIX reported.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the woman died from the heart condition or from injuries sustained during the crash, which was captured on surveillance video.
All other injuries related to the crash appeared to be minor, sources said.
In the footage, the sedan appears to strike the ambulance from the right.
Photos of the crash’s aftermath show the emergency vehicle turned over on its side and the Nissan Maxima lying in the distance with its entire front engine smashed in.
