Ambulance involved in Canton head-on collision, three injured

An ambulance crashed head-on into another vehicle on Route 138 near Industrial Drive in Canton earlier tonight, sending both drivers to the hospital by MedFlight.

No patients were inside the ambulance during the crash, which was operated by one EMT with another riding in the passenger seat, Canton police Lieutenant Patty Sherrill said. A male was operating the other vehicle, and was the only person inside.

The damage to both the ambulance and Nissan Altima was “pretty extensive,’’ Sherrill said. Canton officials and State Police are still at the scene and Route 138 was still closed at 10:45 p.m.

Two of the passengers were taken to Boston Medical Center and another was transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Their conditions are not known.


Canton police are investigating the accident, and did not know how the accident occurred.
