MINNEAPOLIS — Two paramedics and a driver were injured Wednesday night after a vehicle crashed into an Allina ambulance, causing the rig to roll in downtown Minneapolis.

Just after 8 p.m., police responded to the crash near East 14th Street and Portland Avenue, where a car had struck a moving ambulance. The ambulance was not in the midst of a service call and did not have a patient on board, said Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder.

The rig rolled on impact and struck a minivan with three occupants, who were uninjured. Two paramedics and the driver of the car were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, just blocks away, with noncritical injuries.

The cause of the crash is unknown, but Elder said alcohol does not appear to be a factor. Police are investigating.
