FORT WORTH, Texas — A newly released video shows a Cleburne ambulance crashing into multiple vehicles and flipping onto its side shortly after 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 11 on the Chisholm Trail Parkway south of I-20, CBSDFW reported Wednesday.

Seven people sustained minor injuries, including the two paramedics on board. The patient who was in the rig at the time was transported successfully.

Cleburne Fire Chief Scott Lail said that the paramedics have recovered and returned to work. If any disciplinary actions are taken against the person who drove the ambulance, they would be handled internally.

The TV station acquired the North Texas Tollway Authority video through an open records request.
