We regret to advise you that an Indianapolis EMS crew member was killed in the Line of Duty this morning-and a 2nd is extremely critical following a crash.
The crash happened around 0330 Hours at the intersection of St. Clair Street and Senate Avenue. The driver and the medic in the ambulance were extricated and transported to Wishard Hospital in critical condition. Reports are that a car that was westbound on St. Clair struck the ambulance that was southbound on Senate. The female driver of the passenger car was in good condition and transported to Wishard for a legal blood draw. Our initial reports are that the crew members are Wishard EMS personnel, which is the Indy 9-1-1 EMS service.
The traffic light at the intersection was flashing yellow for northbound and southbound vehicles and red for vehicles that were eastbound and westbound at the time of the crash and the ambulance was struck by a passenger car while going through the intersection of Senate and St. Clair around 3:37 a.m. The ambulance had the right of way.
