No injuries occurred Tuesday morning when a City of Red Deer Emergency services vehicle responding to a call collided with a civilian vehicle.

Const. Sabrina Grunow of city RCMP said the crash occurred about 11:05 a.m. near 67th Street and Gaetz Avenue at an entrance leading into the Village Mall.

Grunow said the ambulance passed the vehicle, which then collided with a trailing fire truck that had its lights and sirens going.

The collision resulted in minor damage to both vehicles.

The ambulance also had its lights and siren activated when it passed the vehicle.

Common practice for the department is to send two vehicles to an ambulance call.

The trailing vehicle has at least two fire-medics who can assist the fire-medics in the ambulance should they require help such as attending a patient or controlling the scene. The ambulance arrived at its destination safely while another fire truck was dispatched to assist.

Grunow said charges are pending against the driver of the civilian vehicle for failing to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle.
