BRONX, N.Y. — Two FDNY ambulances, both with their lights flashing, collided in the Bronx on Saturday, with the impact pushing one of the vehicles into a light pole and onto its side, police said.

No serious injuries were reported following the 4 p.m. crash on Brook Ave. near E. 142nd St. in Mott Haven.

The force of the collision shoved one of the ambulances onto its side as it slid into a light pole, which also was felled by the impact.

Two EMS members were in each ambulance, but managed to get themselves out, officials said. Neither ambulance had a patient. All four medics were taken to Lincoln Hospital for evaluation.

Both the NYPD and the FDNY were investigating.

It was not immediately disclosed if one or both of the ambulances were responding to a 911 call when the crash occurred.
