Authorities in Philadelphia say six people have been injured, one critically, in a three-vehicle crash involving an ambulance Wednesday morning about 8:30.

The ambulance was carrying a patient when it struck a sport utility vehicle, and that both vehicles then struck a parked car, officials said.

They say the vehicles ended up on a sidewalk by a Laundromat near the intersection of Chew Avenue and Washington Lane in the city’s East Mount Airy section.

The crash victims are being treated at Albert Einstein Medical Center.
