Ambulance involved in 3-car collision in Central Bakersfield


An ambulance and two other cars were wrapped up in a three-way crash Monday afternoon on California Avenue.  

It happened at the intersection of California Avenue and Oak Street at around 12:45 p.m. 

Bakersfield police say the ambulance was going eastbound with its sirens and lights activated, but a car going northbound was slow to yield, and hit the passenger’s side of the ambulance. 

The impact knocked the ambulance into a third car. 

First responders had to use Jaws of Life to get one person out. A passenger in the ambulance was transported to the hospital.

The crash is under investigation.
