LAFD Ambulance, Minivan Crash in Reseda

RESEDA, Calif. -- Responding to what turned out to be a false alarm, three people, including a firefighter, suffered minor injuries in a collision between a Los Angeles Fire Department ambulance and a minivan in Reseda on Tuesday.

The crash in the 7000 block of North Reseda Boulevard was reported about 11:50 a.m., said d'Lisa Davies of the LAFD.

Davies said that the ambulance was on its way to a structure fire, which turned out to be a false alarm.

"It never got there," she said.

Davies also said the normal procedure in a case like this is for the ambulance to stop and render aid. Another ambulance was then dispatched to the fire.

Davies said the firefighter/paramedic driving the ambulance was hurt, as were a man and a woman in the minivan. All three were taken to hospitals for treatment.
