First responders initially responded to Cameron Hill Court in Silver Spring around 9 p.m. for an injured woman who slipped on the ice. That woman, along with a helper, was struck when the ambulance hit a patch of ice at the bottom of a hill and slid.
The woman who initially fell was hospitalized with serious injuries. The other pedestrian was also injured, but is expected to be OK.
