Ambulance crash compensation a possibility in Cambridgeshire
A road traffic accident in Cambridgeshire may result in an ambulance crash compensation claim being made.
The accident occurred in Hauxton Road, when an ambulance being driven to an emergency call collided with a car.
The individuals in the vehicle, a man and a woman, were in their 80s.
Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue, the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust, and a rapid response car attended the scene.
The elderly man was helped out of the vehicle by the ambulance crew, but the woman had to be cut from the car by the fire rescue team.
Once the casualties were free from the vehicle, they were both taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital, but they only suffered minor personal injuries.
A spokesperson for the NHS Trust stated, "The ambulance service will carry out a thorough internal investigation into what caused the collision and assist the police with their investigation."
News reports have not mentioned the condition of the people in the ambulance which was involved, and it is not yet known whether the elderly couple will be claiming for ambulance crash compensation since liability for the accident has not yet been determined.
