SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. — Two Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, paramedics were injured when their ambulance was struck by a hit-and-run driver.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported the paramedics were transporting a patient when another vehicle rear-ended the ambulance on Highway 151.

Both paramedics were taken to a hospital with minor injuries and released. Another ambulance crew transported the patient, who was stable prior to the crash and did not suffer crash-related injuries.

"I am grateful that our paramedics were not badly injured and that they will return home safely to their families tonight," Sun Prairie EMS Chief Brian Goff said. "They will have some time off to rest and we look forward to having them back to work soon."

Police are searching for the other driver, who fled the scene.
