PARAMEDICS sent to deal with a medical emergency ended up in an emergency themselves.
Their ambulance was in a crash with a car at a junction on a main Huddersfield road.
The vehicle was in collision with a Citroen at the junction of Wakefield Road and Silver Street just before 2.30pm yesterday.
The force of the impact sent the ambulance careering into traffic lights and bollards near the large Lidl store at the bottom of Somerset Road.
Both paramedics – a man and a woman – suffered slight burn injuries after their airbags went off.
The car driver was unhurt.
The smash caused traffic hold-ups in the area.
Earlier in the day passengers escaped injury in a bus crash near Deighton.
