LAFD: Two Firefighters Injured Ambulance vs Garbage Truck

LOS ANGELES — Two firefighters were seriously hurt when their ambulance collided with a garbage truck in Los Angeles Monday.

It was unclear what caused the crash or why the trash truck was in the intersection, Fire Department spokesman Matt Spence told the Los Angeles Times.

The firefighters were hospitalized with serious injuries.

LAPD officials said the ambulance was responding to a Code 3, which is an emergency call requiring a response unit with lights and sirens.
