95-year-old woman inside ambulance killed, others injured in Brooklyn crash

FLATLANDS, Brooklyn (WABC) -- At least eight people were injured and a 95-year-old woman inside an ambulance was killed after it was T-boned by a car in Brooklyn.

Video from Citizen App shows the vehicle flipped over on its side near Avenue N and Schenectady Ave. around 3 p.m. on Sunday.



Surveillance video shows the moment of impact when a black sedan crashed into the ambulance. It is unclear at this point which driver had the green light.

Police say the woman inside the ambulance was already in cardiac arrest moments before the crash, and EMTs were working on her. She was in the ambulance with her 65-year-old son.
