An alleged drunk driver crashed into the back of an American Legion Ambulance Service (DE) ambulance, causing one of the EMS providers to be knocked unconscious for several hours, according to a report.

The three in the ambulance – including two ambulance staff – were taken to the hospital. The patient being transported was not hurt.
