CHP, RSO, and other emergency personnel, were first alerted to the crash shortly after 8 a.m., when an AmeriCare ambulance crew reported the accident. The reporting party advised the crash was near the “new traffic light and fire station,” and that both involved vehicles had pulled off the roadway, according to a CHP incident log. The crash also involved a Subaru Outback driven by a male.

CHP’s incident log also indicated that someone had reported that the ambulance was driving recklessly just before the crash happened, but the log provided no further details as to how the ambulance crew was driving recklessly.

The Subaru was eventually towed from the scene shortly after 9 a.m., and CHP is investigating the cause of the accident.

CHP’s incident log did not mention any injuries involved in the crash or any further details.
